Michael Patrick Thomas Lynagh, AM

Former Australian Rugby Player

Michael Lynagh was a key man in Australia’s victorious 1991 World Cup campaign. This wasn’t his first World Cup as he also featured in the 1987 tournament. After notching up 911 points he retired from international rugby, playing his last game in 1995 before joining Saracens.

Since retiring from the game Michael has remained involved in rugby but has adopted other projects too. He is a director of the commercial property investment division of Allco Finance Group, a prominent Australian company.

He also acts as an after-dinner and motivational speaker. His passion for the sport is still evident, though, in his work as a TV commentator for Sky Sports UK and in the numerous articles he has written since retiring. Numerous English newspapers have been desperate for his input, including the Daily Mail.
