Biography

Former ‘All Black’ (originally from Western Samoa), Schuster's strong runs down the flank and radar-like goal-kicking set Knights fans cheering for more during the heady 1992 season. Despite setting two early club records - greatest career points and most points in a season (152pts in 1992), both bettered by Andrew Johns - Shuster spent most of the 1993 season in reserve grade and he shifted to English club Halifax at season’s end.
