Fearless forward Tony Miller retired from Test Rugby after a 1967 Test against the All Blacks, aged 38, as the most-capped Australian Test player – a record he held for five years until overtaken by Peter Johnson.
“Slaggy” Miller made his debut as a No.8 against Fiji in 1952 and two months later was in the second row when the Wallabies beat New Zealand in Christchurch. He moved to the front row in 1961.
Miller, who died in 1988, was also a legend at club level, playing with Manly then coaching at both Manly and Warringah, playing his last match for Manly at age 47 against a touring French team.
