He was known as “Super Sid.” He was regarded as the ultimate running halfback, his dabs from the back of the scrum giving his side a significant point of difference. He played a total of eighty-six matches for New Zealand and scored 164 points from thirty-three tries, eighteen conversions, five penalty goals and a dropped goal. He played for New Zealand Māori for twelve years, Northland (when it was known as North Auckland) for sixteen and numerous other national and invitation teams. Sid Going was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire for services to rugby in 1977.
