Profile

Tim Horan

Tim Horan is possibly the greatest centre Rugby Union has seen.

Current work

Tim has moulded his natural leadership abilities, flair and humour in public speaking and utilized them for a seamless transition to the next phase of his career. In 2014 he graduated with an Executive MBA from Bond University.

Previous experience

With a 12 year career with the Wallabies, Tim earned his first gold jersey as a teenager again the All Blacks in 1989. Two years later at the 1991 World Cup, Tim was crucial to the Wallabies success, most notably when he gobbled up and scored from David Campese's memorable over-the-shoulder, no-look pass in the semi-final against New Zealand. No try has been given as much replay time since.

In 1994, Tim suffered a potentially career ending knee injury. Doctors had told him he was unlikely to play rugby again. Tim was out of the game for 12 months and made a remarkable comeback at the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

In 1999, Tim became one of only 6 players to have won 2 Rugby World Cup medals, by guiding Australia to its second World Cup victory. Tim also won a Years supply of Guinness for scoring the fastest try in the tournament.

In 2009 Tim was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia. He is a member of the Australia Sport Hall of Fame as well as the International Rugby Hall of Fame and was awarded the Centenary Medal in 2001.
