Although a niggler and supreme practical joker with the Brumbies and Vodafone Wallabies, Finegan is a true game breaker. It’s been often said that when Finegan plays well, the Wallabies play well.

"One of the true characters of the game..." The big, strong, bruising backrower has a special try scoring talent and that was no more evident than during the 1999 World Cup final against France.

The big, strong, bruising backrower had a special try scoring talent and that was no more evident than during the Rugby World Cup final against France when he scored the winning try. Owen ran through most of the French team from 40 metres out. The other half were on his back trying to bring him down!

Owen is a foundation member of the ACT Brumbies team and has played over 50 Tests for the Wallabies. "Icon of Australian sport..." Owen's solid reputation has been built around his on field success. Not many players can boast to have won a Rugby World Cup, a Lions Series, two Super 12 trophies, numerous Bledisloe victories and voted Wallaby Player of the Year.
