Nick Farr-Jones is a highly decorated former captain of the Australian Rugby Union team. Blessed with natural born leadership, Nick Farr-Jones captained the Australian team during a successful a period between 1988 and 1992 that saw the team win the Rugby Union World Cup, the 1992 Bledisloe Cup and convincingly defeat South Africa.

Nick and former team-mate Steve Cutler co-authored a book; Nick and Cuts, and his biography by Peter FitzSimmons was a number one best-seller in 1993. In 2003 Nick released Nick Farr-Jones’ Story of the Rugby World Cup. Nick has continued writing with regular pieces for such newspapers as The Daily Telegraph in the United Kingdom and The Daily Telegraph in Sydney.
