Since foundation in 1868, sport has been embedded into the culture of Brisbane Grammar School, playing a fundamental role in producing a well-rounded Grammar Man. The light dark blue has been proudly worn since Headmaster Reginald Heber Roe introduced the sporting colours of Oxford and Cambridge in the late 1870s.
Over almost 150 years, BGS has produced sportsmen who have proudly represented Australia in sports ranging from cricket, tennis, rugby, rowing, football, track and field and many others.
From Wallabies leader Stephen Moore balancing a brilliant playing career with roles as a gender equality advocate and Lifeline ambassador, to dual rugby and cricket international Otto Nothling, who later served in WWII as a major in the Australian Army Medical Corps; BGS boasts a growing list of wonderful sporting all-rounders.
