    Playing career

    After initially starting playing in rugby union Michael signed for NSWRL club the Canberra Raiders in 1991 and made his Winfield Cup début for the club off the bench against Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in a narrow 14-15 loss.
    Maguire did not feature again until 1994 when he came off the bench again against Penrith Panthers. He had a more consistent season the following year, making six appearances in total, most of which he started as either Wing or Centre. Maguire's first try came as a centre against the Parramatta Eels.
    In 1997 Maguire left Canberra and signed for the new Adelaide Rams club of the breakway Australian Super League competition. He made his début at fullback against the North Queensland Cowboys which Adelaide lost. Maguire also participated in the World Club Challenge for the Rams that year. He went on to play four more games for Adelaide and scored one try before returning to Canberra in 1998.
    Maguire made two appearances for Canberra in 1998 before retiring after persistent neck problems.

    He was from Canberra since birth. His father was the captain of the St Edmunds first XV Rugby Union team. he played Union all through school St Eddies and so did his brother. I was in the same year as his brother from 5 to 12. Not a bad bloke massive Union family but Michael grew up in that golden Era of the Raiders and was good mates with Dave Furner who were also at st eddies
