BiographyMichael Ridge is Wheatley's’ player representative. During the 2018-19 season when the Wheatley beat Gosford, Moose crowned a ten year career that started with a man-of-the-match performance against Littlemore in 2001. Unquestionably a great player of his generation, he is arguably amongst the most hardworking rugby player at Wheatley at this time. Moose recounts for the first time, with brutal honesty, the roots of his family life that defined his character – learning to play the game on with the Wheatley mini and Junior section and being inspired to fly gliders by his war-hero grandfather – and how it gave him the strength to emerge from the lowest moment in his career to become a successful rugby player . Unafraid of playing the game right at the edge and putting his body on the line for his team mates, Moose has set the standard of what a Wheatley rugby player should be. Hugely popular and respected, his sheer presence means that he is a natural leader of men both on and off the pitch.
