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

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.
