Dan Crowley

Queenslander Dan Crowley played for Australia in three World Cups - in 1991, 1995 and 1999 - which qualifies him for membership of a most unique international rugby club.
Importantly, he was a member of two winning World Cup teams - in 1991 and 1999 - another rare honour for the Brisbane-born front-rower and one-time undercover cop.

Dan made his debut in Wallaby Gold in the first Test against the touring British Lions in Brisbane in 1989.

It was a memorable start to his career, the Wallabies with the likes of Tom Lawton, Steve Cutler, Nick Farr-Jones, Michael Lynagh and David Campese onboard, steamrolling the Lions 30-12.

His final Test provided another enthralling chapter in an international career which reaped him 39 Test caps: as a member of the Wallabies line-up that beat France 35-12 in the 1999 World Cup final at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

At state level, the proud Queenslander made 125 appearances for the Reds, making him their most capped forward in history.

Dan recently signed a publishing contract with Pan Macmillan and his first book on his dual life as rugby international and undercover cop will be released in mid 2005.

In 2003 Dan made his debut as a member of the Seven Network's rugby commentary team and was widely praised for his insightful, analytical and sometimes humourous comments throughout the season culminating in its Rugby World Cup coverage. Dan will be a member of Seven's commentary team again in 2005 alongside former Wallabies teammate Tim Horan. He also works regularly on radio 4BC in Brisbane.

Founder of his own commercial investigation company, Crowmont Services, Dan Crowley's talents, though, extend well beyond rugby commentary and publishing. He is in great demand as a function MC, his ready wit making him a favourite on the luncheon and dinner circuit.
