the New Zealand All Blacks under John Mitchell.

Sharks), Matt Orford and Cameron Smith (Melbourne Storm) and All Blacks Daniel Carter, Andrew Mehrtens, Tony Brown, Carlos
Spencer and Leon McDonald.

Kiwi-born Halligan played rugby in New Zealand before launching his rugby league career in Australia with the North Sydney
Bears and the Canterbury Bulldogs.

In his 230 games with the Bears and the Bulldogs, Halligan kicked 855 goals, four field goals and 80 tries. His success rate was a
staggering 80 per cent. In all senior matches, including 29 appearances for the New Zealand Kiwis, former Kiwi international
