Nick Farr-Jones

Nick Farr-Jones
Articulate and intelligent, Nick Farr-Jones is a natural leader whose ability to motivate was clearly demonstrated in the Wallabies proven success record. Captain of the team which brought home the Rugby Union World Cup in 1991, the 1992 Bledisloe Cup and which convincingly defeated the Springboks in August 1992, Nick was Australia’s most capped scrum half and it's most capped captain.

Always a sportsman, Nick excelled at school sports captaining every school team in which he played.

His career path took him from Newington College to Sydney University, where he studied Law from 1980-1985 and then to the Sydney city law firm of Garland Hawthorn Brahe.

Nick was first selected for both New South Wales and Australian in 1984 and captained 36 successive tests for the Australian team from 1988 to 1992, as well as captaining the World XV to play New Zealand in 1992 for the NZ Rugby Union Centenary celebrations.

Other teams for which Nick has played include Southern Hemisphere vs. British Lions, IRB Centenary celebrations (1986), Australian 7-a-side team to Hong Kong (1987), Bahrain Warblers 7-a-side to Monaco (1988), Barbarians vs. New Zealand (1989) and Barbarians Centenary celebrations vs. England and Wales (Captain-1990). He also played Rugby for the University of Sydney from 1980 until 1994.

In addition to Rugby, Nick also co-authored Nick and Cuts with fellow Wallaby Steve Cutler. His biography, penned by Peter FitzSimons, was a #1 Best-Seller just weeks after its release in July 1993.

Articulate, intelligent and a natural leader, Nick is very much an ambassador for Rugby Union, as evidenced by the AM he was awarded in 1992. He retired from professional playing in 1993.

Motivation, leadership, teamwork, winning, persistence - Nick Farr-Jones excels in all of these and is an extremely popular speaker.
