Grant Fox
Inducted in 1999
Grant Fox was a prolific points scorer and astute tactician for Auckland and the All Blacks during the 80s when both were dominant.
Sporting Category:
  • Rugby Union
He played 46 tests for New Zealand (78 matches overall) between 1984 and 1993 and scored a record 1067 points, 645 in tests (the previous record had been 207 by Don Clarke).

His Ranfurly Shield, Auckland and New Zealand tallies were all records, as was his total of 46 tests at first five-eighth. His 433 points in first-class rugby during the 1989 season was also a record.

Fox’s scoring success rate was such that it often obscured his value as a first five-eighth and a strategist, a value that was even more appreciated after his retirement after the Lions series in 1993.
