Mr Tim Horan AM

Arguably the greatest centre rugby has ever seen, Tim earned his first gold jersey as a teenager against the All Blacks in 1989. He was crucial to the Wallabies' 1991 World Cup success, most notably when he 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, with doctors fearing that he would likely never play rugby again. Out of the game for 12 months, he made a remarkable comeback at the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

In 1999, Tim became one of only six players to win two Rugby World Cup medals when he guided Australia to its second World Cup victory. He was announced Player of the Tournament, and perhaps more importantly was awarded a year's supply of Guinness for scoring the fastest try in the tournament.

Awarded the Centenary Medal in 2001 and the Member of the Order of Australia in 2009, he is a member of both the Australia Sport Hall of Fame and the International Rugby Hall of Fame.
