Wallabies captain Stephen Moore signs three-year deal with St.George Queensland Reds from 2017


Queensland Rugby Union has secured the signature of current Wallabies captain Stephen Moore from 2017.

A product of the Queensland pathway, Moore will return home to the St.George Queensland Reds on a three-year deal from 2017 through to the next Rugby World Cup in 2019.

Raised in Brisbane from a young age, Moore made his Super Rugby debut for Queensland in 2003. He played 46 games for Queensland between 2003 and 2008, before signing with the Brumbies in 2009.

Moore made his Wallabies debut while with the Reds in 2005 and has gone on to play 102 Tests for Australia. He has played at three Rugby World Cups, captaining them at the most recent tournament in England, where the Wallabies finished second. 

Queensland Rugby Union Executive General Manager – Reds, Daniel Herbert, said: “Stephen is a world-class player and a talismanic leader with unquestionable integrity and durability. 

“He is a product of the Queensland Rugby pathways and the value he will provide to this team and organisation is immense. 

“Our Head of Pathways and List Management, Sam Cordingley, is doing an excellent job in retaining and recruiting the very best talent available and we will continue to be very active in this space.

“In the meantime, we have a big year ahead of us and out of respect for our Reds squad, the Brumbies and Stephen himself, our focus is solely on the upcoming season.”

Moore said he was looking forward to returning to Brisbane in 2017.

“It was a really difficult call to make but we were keen to get back to Brisbane to be closer to family and felt the timing was right.


"Queensland is where I started my career and from a distance, it looks like the Reds are building a strong program, which I'm looking forward to being a part of from 2017."
