The sculpture commemorates Rugby League player Michael Weyman who was born in Moruya. 

Michael Weyman (born 13 September 1984) was an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the St. George Illawarra Dragons of the National Rugby League (NRL).

A New South Wales State of Origin representative front row forward, he also previously played club football with the Canberra Raiders before moving to the Dragons with whom he won the 2010 NRL Premiership. In 2010 he was selected in the Australian test team to play New Zealand. 

In July 2013, Weyman signed a two-year deal with Hull Kingston Rovers for the 2014 Super League season. During the 2014 season, he scored four tries in four consecutive games which placed him 2nd in the Hull Kingston Rovers try charts for a brief period of time. Weyman retired in March 2015.
