Biography

In one of the more remarkable comeback stories in World Rugby, Greg Holmes has returned to the Wallabies squad in 2015, following an eight-season absence from the Test arena. Holmes’ previous Test appearance for the Wallabies was in 2007 at the Rugby World Cup in France, coming off the bench against England.The second-most capped Queensland Reds player won a Super Rugby championship with the side in 2011. Holmes’ return helped sparked a remarkable turnaround of the Wallabies scrum, contributing in the back end of games, making the set piece something for opponents to fear during their run to a Rugby World Cup final. The 32-year-old will be remembered for a scintillating runaway try against Ireland in 2006.
