Biography

Ex-Manly RU star played in six Tests with the Wallabies and gained dual international status after changing codes to play with Wests. A superbly fit centre/winger, Knight was chosen in Australia's World Cup side in 1972 after representing NSW Colts. Although he did not play in a Test during his career Knight went on to play for Balmain in the mid-1970s before being a member of the Manly side that won the 1978 grand final replay against Cronulla. In 1979 he was sent off after a clash with Wests' forward John Donnelly at the height of the club's 'Silvertails-Fibros' feud and retired at the end of the year.

Your Say

Ray Villarica says: Is this the Steve that was the trainer at the Tabcorp gym for a little while there in the 0's (naughties). If yes, top bloke and scary boxing fitness partner - after holding the mits for him your shoulders would hurt for the week then you come back the next week for more. Hope all's well mate.
