Land Rover Australia announced today that Rugby legend George Gregan has come on board as the latest ambassador for the brand. Gregan said of the partnership, “I have for a long time been a fan of Land Rover with the brand resonating with adventure and outdoor living. The fact that Land Rover is official global partner of the 2013 Lions Tour and the 2015 Rugby World Cup makes the partnership an especially exciting one at this time, and I look forward to getting behind the wheel ! ”
Tim Krieger, Brand Manager of Land Rover Australia “Land Rover is extremely proud to partner with such a prominent Australian, who has been synonymous with the success of Australian rugby. George Gregan embodies the values of the Land Rover brand: performance, strength, capability and the drive to succeed.”
George Gregan is an Australian rugby union scrum-half who has made more appearances for his national team than any other player in the sport's history. He has captained the team to many victories and he is respected throughout the rugby world for his tenacity, tactical skill, leadership ability, and sportsmanship.
Gregan has played Super 14 for the ACT Brumbies since the inception of that competition in 1996, helping to lead them to overall victories in 2001 and 2004. He is a foundation Brumbies player and one of the few players whose careers span over both the amateur and professional eras.
He is also the founding director of the George Gregan foundation which is committed to raising funds for specific projects targeting children.
George will drive a Land Rover Discovery 4, one of the flagship models of the range. He joins fellow Land Rover ambassadors, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, Jennifer Hawkins, and Phil Waugh and will make his first appearance for the brand at the First Test between the Wallabies and the British Lions in Brisbane on Saturday 22nd June.
