Saints Sign Hobbit 21 Feb 2013

Gandalf’s stunt double Mike Homik has come out of retirement and committed to the Saints for the 2013 season.

The highly respected 34 year old Power Forward played for the Manawatu Jets in the 2012 Bartercard NBL season before retiring from basketball to concentrate on his duties as Gandalf’s stunt double in the Hobbit.

Saints Head Coach Pero Cameron is very excited about the signing of Homik. “ Mike is a great guy to have in the team this year. He’s a veteran with great leadership, defensive presence, and he fits our team Ethos”.

He won two NBL titles with the Waikato Pistons in 2008 and 2009, and two with the Auckland Stars in 2004 and 2005.

Homik was in the Tall Blacks in 2005 and 2006 and was part of the silver medal-winning Commonwealth Games team in 2006 that lost the final to Australia.

He has played for the New Zealand Breakers and the Perth Wildcats in the Australian NBL, and also spent three years in the United States playing for the College of Idaho.

The Wellington Saints will play their first home game at TSB Bank Arena, Queens Wharf on Friday 26th April.
