Darren Lockyer's Biography

Born in Brisbane, Queensland, Darren Lockyer is the second professional Rugby League player in Australian history to win the prestigious Golden Boot Award twice.


Widely considered one of the finest players in the modern game, Lockyer has played more games and scored more points for the Brisbane Broncos than any other player in the club’s history.

Previous Captain of the Brisbane Broncos, Australian Kangaroos sides and the Queensland Maroons, Lockyer played in the five-eighth position having moved there in 2004 from his previous position of fullback. He endured heavy criticism for this move but responded in 2006 with arguably his finest ever season, becoming the first person since Allan Langer (a former teammate) to captain winning teams in the National Rugby League premiership, the State of Origin series and the Tri-Nations series all in the same year.

Lockyer ended his career captaining the Australian national team to victory in the 2011 Four Nations. He now has two sons and provides commentary for televised rugby league matches.
