Ask about Dan Crowley
Key Points
  • What could be tougher than being a front-rower for the Wallabies? How about going undercover to smash drug rings on the Gold Coast? Amazingly, Dan Crowley juggled both these jobs for several years without ever being recognised by the criminals he pursued.
  • Dan stayed with Queensland Police for 11 years, though not always as an undercover detective, and has written the book Undercover Prop about his double life.
  • Some of the highlights of Dan's international rugby career include three World Cups, one of them a victory against France at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Dan also fondly remembers his first Test against the touring British Lions in Brisbane in 1989. "My team-mates were Steve Cutler, Nick Farr-Jones, Michael Lynagh and David Campese. We steamrolled the Lions 30-12," he says. Dan pulled on the Queensland Reds jersey 125 times and has also been on the board of Queensland Rugby Union.
  • In 2003 Dan made his debut as a member of the Seven Network's rugby commentary team and was widely praised for his insightful, analytical and sometimes humorous comments throughout the season culminating in its Rugby World Cup coverage. Dan remains a member of Seven's commentary team alongside former Wallabies teammates Tim Horan and John Eales.
