Biography Simon Gillies joined Canterbury in 1988 as a lock forward.

The brother of Ben Gillies, Simon started his initial season in reserve grade and received the opportunity to play first grade against Cronulla in the Semi-Final as a replacement.

In 1989 and 1990, Simon was a regular member of the reserve grade team until Jamie Corcoran was injured, allowing Simon to be promoted to first grade.

In 1991, Simon started the season in first grade and became a regular member of the team.

In 1992, Simon played every first grade game before missing most of 1993 with a broken leg.

Simon did return late in the season to play in the Preliminary Final against Brisbane as a replacement.
