TOPICS: SPORT, MOTIVATION, LEADERSHIP Articulate and intelligent, Nick Farr-Jones is a natural born leader whose ability to motivate and inspire was clearly demonstrated as captain of the Wallabies during the period 1988-1992. As 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 Farr-Jones was Australia’s most capped scrum half (until George Gregan) and it’s most capped captain (until John Eales).
His early 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 Australia in 1984, and captained 36 consecutive 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. In addition to playing Rugby, Nick also co-authored Nick and Cuts with fellow Wallaby Steve Cutler. His biography, penned by his good mate Peter FitzSimmons, was a #1 Best Seller just weeks after it’s release in July 1993. In August 2003, Nick launched ‘Nick Farr-Jones: Story of the Rugby World Cup’ a book published by Australia Post launched in conjunction with the release of the official Rugby World Cup stamp collection.
