Mark Loane

Another Queenslander, Mark Loane is regarded as one of the finest Rugby products ever to emerge from the sunshine state.

Australian Rugby supporters have the fact that Mark Loane was sent to Brisbane’s Nudgee College to thank for his later becoming a Wallaby, rather than following his father into Rugby League.

The big number eight would play 28 Tests for Australia between 1973 and 1982.

Mark Loane would successfully captain the Wallabies in his final year in the famous
gold jersey.

Known for his punishing defence and momentum in attack, Mark Loane once described number 8 as the supreme position in the team, with seven players in front and seven behind.
