Tom Lawton Snr

The late Tom Lawton Senior, born in Queensland in 1899 was a brilliant alround sportsman, but it was as a Rugby Flyhalf that would become famous.

Tom Lawton Senior played for both Queensland and NSW before captaining Australia to a famous three Test whitewash of the All Blacks in 1929.

Nicknamed “the loping ghost” because of his ability to avoid tackles, Tom Lawton Senior would earn 14 Test caps, captaining his country in six.

Tom Lawton Senior was also a Rhodes Scholar and played Rugby for Oxford University.

His Grandsons Robert and Tom Junior would also become Wallabies.




There is justice. Australia and New Zealand duking it out for World Cup glory is the final the rugby world deserves.
