Andrew Slack's Biography

Former Australia and Queensland Centre, Andrew Slack is most famous for leading the Wallabies on their 1984 Grand Slam tour of Europe which saw the stylish Wallabies record victories over England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, out-scoring their opponents 100 points to 33 in the four Tests.
Andrew Slack proved an inspiring and intelligent leader during the Wallabies' 1984 'Grand Slam' tour of Europe, the tourists recording successive victories over the Home Unions with a mixture of tactical acumen and sheer genius from the likes of Ella - who scored tries in every Test - and David Campese.
In total, Andrew Slack captained Australia 19 times in 39 caps for the Wallabies between 1978 and 1987, scoring ten Test tries and played 133 times for his native Queensland.
After retirement he became a rugby journalist and author before becoming Queensland Reds assistant coach under John Connolly between 1993 and 1998, seeing the Reds take the Super 10 title in 1994 and 1995.
In 2002 Andrew Slack was appointed as head coach of Queensland, standing down from his Wallaby position to concentrate on his new coaching duties.
