Ian Moir - A Try Scoring Phenomenon

The fastest man in Rugby League during the 1950s, Ian Moir was a try scoring phenomenon in the 1950s. Debuting in 1952, Moir quickly established himself as a force on the field. In 1953 he was the season’s leading try scorer with 20 tries and another three coming in the Grand Final win over St George. Moir would be joint leading try-scorer in the 1957 World Cup and help Australia lift the trophy in their undefeated campaign. With 104 tries to his name in 110 appearance, Moir still stands in the Souths records book thanks to his five tries in a game against Parramatta in 1957 – he shares this record with several other Rabbitohs. Even in 1988 Moir still had his trademark athleticism, winning the 1988 NSW Veterans (50-54 years old) 100m Championship in 12.7 seconds.
