Profile

Joe Roff was a pillar of one of the most successful Australia sides of all time, playing at three Rugby World Cups and helping the Wallabies to the Webb Ellis Trophy in 1999.

A return of 30 tries in 86 Tests tells only part of the story, as Roff was for a time one of the most reliable cogs in John Eales' famous side. He lifted the Tri-Nations trophy in successive seasons in 2000 and 2001, while spearheading the Brumbies' ascent to the top of the Super 12.

Also in 2001 he helped the Wallabies to victory over the touring British & Irish Lions, with his brace of tries in the second Test at Docklands Stadium in Melbourne turning the tide of the series.

His international career came to an end in 2004, but following a stint with French side Biarritz he joined Japanese outfit Kubota Spears for the 2005-06 season. His next move was away from the spotlight, opting to undertake a degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford University.

In 2006 he turned out for Oxford in their Varsity Match defeat to Cambridge at Twickenham and captained them in another defeat the following year, his final game.
