Player Bio

New Zealand-born to polish parents, it wasn’t until Adam Korczyk’s family moved to Brisbane in 2007 that he discovered his love of Rugby.

His father Dariusz, a cardiologist, moved the family across the Tasman in 2007, with Korczyk later committing to Rugby at Brisbane State High from where he represented Australian Schoolboys in 2012.

Following impressive contributions to McInnes Wilson Lawyers Brisbane City in the inaugural Buildcorp National Rugby Championship, Korczyk was awarded a St.George Queensland Reds contract ahead of the 2015 Super Rugby season.

He made his Super Rugby debut in 2015 and after impressive performances in 2017 was selected in the Wallabies squad for The Rugby Championship.

Continued to build on his Super Rugby experience throughout the 2018 season. Captained Brisbane City in the National Rugby Championship.
Established himself as a regular member of the match-day 23, including starts at both blindside and openside flanker. Named in the Wallabies 33-man squad for the opening two Bledisloe Cup Tests of The Rugby Championship. He also returned from Wallabies camp ahead of the Queensland Premier Rugby grand final to come off the bench for University of Queensland in their 23-14 win over GPS. Added a further six NRC caps to his name for Brisbane City, but a rib injury ruled him out of further NRC or Test involvement.
Missed much of the season due to a serious knee injury suffered during pre-season training. Returned late in the year for Brisbane City in the National Rugby Championship.
Korczyk made his Super Rugby debut in the imposing environment of Loftus Versfeld, against the Bulls in Pretoria. He went on to play a further two games for the Reds in 2015, scoring a superb try in his second match the following week against the Cheetahs. The Reds were trailing the Cheetahs 10-3 early in the second half when James O’Connor made a linebreak on the halfway line and sprinted down field before passing inside to Adam, who sprinted a further 20 metres and beat one defender to score. The Reds went on to win the match 18-17. Korczyk also featured for the Queensland and Australian Under 20s during the season and was named Player of the Tournament at the National Under-20 Championships in Canberra before being selected in the Australian Under 20s squad for the World Rugby U20 Championship in Italy. While injury ruled him out of much of the 2015 NRC season, Adam returned late in the competition and featured in Brisbane City’s final four games as they claimed back-to-back championships.
A series of injuries meant Adam was forced to fill in as a replacement prop (in uncontested scrums) for University of Queensland during their Premier Rugby grand final win over Sunnybank. He featured in all but one of Brisbane City’s NRC matches in their championship-winning season. His performances in the NRC earned him a contract for the 2015 season.
