Wallaby Hall of Fame

Each year two or more of Australia's greats from all eras of the international game are inducted into the Wallaby Hall of Fame. Inductees are drawn from all Test teams starting with the first side in 1899.

To be eligible for inclusion in the Wallaby Hall of Fame, a player must have:

  • Played at least one Test for Australia
  • Been retired from Rugby for at least 10 years
  • Made a major contribution to the game of Rugby
  • Demonstrated outstanding ability, sportsmanship, commitment, character and personal contribution to their team and the game in their era.

While consideration is given to a players’ on-field career, induction is not based on statistical achievement alone.
