Ruben Wiki
Inducted in 2017
Ruben Wiki’s career in rugby league was one of enduring success and excellence, beginning with the Canberra Raiders in 1993 and ending with the New Zealand Warriors fifteen years later.
Sporting Category:
  • Rugby League
He was the first New Zealander to play 300 first-grade NRL matches and when he retired his fifty-five tests for New Zealand were the most by any player for any country.

He memorably led the Kiwis in their 24-0 win against Australia in the 2005 Tri-Nations, the first time for twenty years the Kiwis had stopped the Kangaroos from scoring.

In all, he played 225 games for Canberra and 87 for the Warriors.

Onny Parun

(1947 - )

It’s not too often that modern sports people admit to answering the call of Queen and country first, but that’s what Onny Parun did in 1975 when he chose to play for New Zealand in a Davis Cup tie instead of playing in a tournament in Holland.
