George Gregan

b. 1973

George Gregan (b. 1973) is arguably the best rugby union half-back in the world today. Born in Zambia, he began playing rugby at St. Edmunds College, Canberra, and made his test debut against Italy at Ballymore in 1994. The same year he won the Bledisloe Cup for Australia with a try-saving tackle in the last minutes of the game. A key and dedicated player for the exciting ACT Brumbies throughout the 1997 International Super 12 Series, he was named Player of the Tournament. In September 2001 he was named Captain of the Australian Rugby Union side, the Wallabies, after leading the ACT Brumbies to victory in the Super 12 tournament earlier in the year. In November 2001 Gregan was named the International Rugby Player of the Year by the London-based International Rugby Players' Association.
