Dream Team : Bob Wiles

ThomasRumsey

I happened across your site and saw the dream teams feature, particularly Mark Wyver's Canterbury dream team. I was a Crusaders supporter from 1968 to about 1973. My Canterbury dream team would look like this;

Mike Ferreira
Never saw him race but his points record speaks for itself.

Les Rumsey
Quick and fearless, would have a go at anyone.

Ross Gilbertson
A tough racer. Led from the front and held the team together following the loss of a big chunk of the 1970 league winning side.

Barry Thomas
A real tryer and quite a stylist. Developed a leg-trailing style during 1969 that was a particular crowd pleaser.

Graeme Smith
A class act. Topped the Division 2 averages with 10.46 in 1970. Always looked and performed like a junior Ivan Mauger. Injury ended his career early.

Brian Kennett
No Canterbury team would be complete without Barney.

Ted Hubbard
Or without 'Hurricane'
