Player Bio

A product of the Queensland pathway, Wallabies captain Stephen Moore returns home to the St.George Queensland Reds on a three-year deal from 2017 through to the next Rugby World Cup in 2019.

Moore was born in Saudi Arabia to Irish parents, but the family moved from Ireland to Australia in 1988, where they originally settled in Mount Morgan in Central Queensland. The family eventually moved to Brisbane, where Moore attended Brisbane Grammar School. He made his Super Rugby debut for Queensland in 2003. He played 47 games for Queensland between 2003 and 2008, before signing with the Brumbies in 2009.

Moore made his Wallabies debut while with the Reds in 2005 and has gone on to play 117 Tests for Australia. He has played at three Rugby World Cups, captaining them at the most recent tournament in England, where the Wallabies finished second.

He is the second-most capped Wallabies player of all time (behind George Gregan on 139) and the 10th most-capped Test player of any nation, as well as the third-most capped Super Rugby player ever (behind Keven Mealamu on 175 and Wyatt Crockett on 170). 

Named in the Reds leadership group and captained the side in three matches following a season-ending injury to regular skipper James Slipper. Became the equal second-most capped Super Rugby player of all time when he matched Keven Mealamu’s impressive tally of 175 games. He also claimed the title of 10th most-capped Test player of all time with his 120th international in the Wallabies' Test against Italy in June.
Made his Super Rugby debut for Queensland against the Bulls at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria. Made his Wallabies debut against Samoa in 2005.
