Profile

In 1962 McDermott became the first Aboriginal player to turn out for the Wallabies, playing two Tests against the All Blacks in Brisbane and Sydney. In 1963 Australia were slated to tour South Africa, a trip that McDermott declared himself unavailable for due to Apartheid. Instead, he crossed codes to play rugby league. Following his retirement he became a barrister and later founded the Lloyd McDermott Rugby Development Trust.
