Grant Fox Bio

Grant Fox was a member of the New Zealand side that won the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987. A metronomic fly half and formidable opponent, he was a true star of the game during his long and illustrious career.

Born 16 June 1962, Grant Fox represented Auckland almost 200 times between 1982 and 1993. During this time, he enjoyed a great deal of success and won the National Provincial Championship (now the Bunnings NPC) on several occasions.

Throughout his time with Auckland, Grant Fox became a true pioneer of the art of goal kicking. In particular, he was one of the first players to lean the ball forward for kicks. As a result, even though he wasn’t particularly strong running with the ball in his hand, many people believe he was one of the greatest fly halves in the history of the sport.

Thanks to his fantastic performances for Auckland, Grant Fox was capped by New Zealand for the first time in 1984. Between then and 1993, he was capped 46 times by his country and he amassed 645 points.

For a brief period of his international career, Grant Fox was banned from playing for the All Blacks because he featured on a rebel tour in 1985. However, when he returned to the fold, he played a vital role in New Zealand’s success at the 1987 Rugby World Cup.

Since retiring from the game in 1993, Grant Fox has held a number of roles within the game. He was involved with Auckland and the Blues as a coach between 1999 and 2003, but he has since moved into commentary for various networks. Since 2011, he has been a selector for the All Blacks.
