There is no doubt that Stu Wilson is one of the most cherished of former All Blacks and is quite rightly regarded as one of the most gifted and skillful players to pull on the famous black jersey. Wilson's impressive All Black career spans 85 matches scoring 50 tries through almost a decade of rugby. During this time, he toured to 13 countries in the black jersey.

The 1981 season was his greatest, where he appeared in 8 internationals scoring 8 tries. After captaining the All Black side to Scotland and England in 1983, Wilson announced his retirement.

Stu Wilson has been described as one of the greatest wingers of all times and parallels the skills of that of Jonah Lomu and John Kirwan.

Since his retirement he has remained one of the games most astute observers and his abilities have earned him respect as a media commentator on television and radio. Also recognised as an enlightened speaker who can captivate an audience with his special brand of humour.

Stu currently lives on the North Shore on Auckland and works for Pub Charity, a gaming machine society as their Auckland Business Manager.

 

 

Career Highlights

199 first class appearances Stu scored 106 tries.

In 1983, after more than 19 months without a test try, Wilson equalled Ian Kirkpatrick’s test try-scoring record in the third test against the British Lions and a fortnight later broke it with his second three-try haul in test rugby.

In 34 tests for the All Blacks the 1.83m, 82kg speedster scored 19 tries, a record until John Kirwan broke it in 1988.

In 1976 the Rugby Almanac named Stu as one of its five players of the year, an honour repeated in 1983.
