Tim Horan's Biography

Tim Horan AM is possibly the greatest centre Rugby Union has seen. After a remarkable 12 year career with the Wallabies, Tim is now a leading commentator for Fox Sports, responsible for providing expert commentary on Rugby Union during Test and Super Rugby matches.

Tim earned his first gold jersey as a teenager against 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 extraordinary comeback at the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

In 1999, Tim became one of only 6 players to have won two Rugby World Cup medals, by guiding Australia to its second World Cup victory. He was announced “Player of the Tournament”, and also won a “years supply of Guinness” for scoring the fastest try.

Tim was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia on Australia day 2009. He is a member of the Australia Sport “Hall of Fame”, the International Rugby “Hall of Fame” and was awarded the Centenary Medal 2001.

Tim has complemented his playing career by maintaining and developing a quality group of business partners and relationships. He is currently the National Head of Sports and Entertainment Division for Westpac Private Bank (2010-present), and a Board Member for Global Elite Sports (2012-present).
