Last week we were delighted to finally present George Gregan, the legendary Wallabies Half Back, with his Honour Cap. We were once again joined by our members and friends of Rugby Centurions at The Queens Club for a memorable evening. We are grateful to George for attending and sharing some insights into his Career.
George enjoyed a 13-year international career, which began when the game was still amateur. As such George was only the 4th man to achieve 100 caps at international level, quite an achievement considering the club is now closing in on 100 centurions.
George enjoyed multiple successes during his 139 caps and had some memorable moments including an flashy behind the back pass in the 1999 world cup final and a try saving and game winning tackle in the 1994 Bledisloe Cup. Of course, his pass in 99’ lead to a try which ensured victory over France making George a World Cup winner. Alongside winning a World Cup George was also inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame in 2013, and honoured by his country becoming a Member of the Order of Australia. By the time he hung up his boots he did so with 139 caps, 99 points and on 59 occasions he led the line as captain for his country. He is one of the greatest Scrum-Half’s to play the game.
Once again it was an honour to have Club Partner Avanti and Kyle Whitehill join us and present George with his Honour Cap.
