Jeff Miller

Jeff played 26 Tests for Australia between 1984 and 1991, retiring after playing his part as a key member of the 1991 Wallabies side which won the World Cup under Bob Dwyer.

He also played 69 games for Queensland as a fearless, scavenging backrower before moving into the coaching and rugby administration ranks.

In 1999 he served as assistant coach to Rod MacQueen, helping guide the Wallabies to their second World Cup triumph before moving to a role with the Australian Rugby Union.

He became Australian rugby's player relations manager and chief negotiator, convincing a host of rugby league players, including high-profile pair Mat Rogers and Wendell Sailor, to switch codes.

Miller was appointed chief executive of the Reds in March 2002, but moved into the head coaching position after Andrew Slack's decision to quit one year into a three-year contract.
