Classic Sportswear is proud to announce and welcome Lachlan ‘Lachie’ Turner as our new Queensland Territory Manager.

Lachie Turner joins the Classic Sportswear team after retiring from Australian professional rugby union.

Turner represented Australia in international Test rugby with 15 appearances for the Wallabies. He also played an impressive 71 Super Rugby matches for the New South Wales Waratahs. In 2014 Lachie signed a two-year contract with the Queensland Reds where he played a further 22 Super Rugby matches.

This young man attended Newington College and started his Club career when selected for the Australian Schoolboys rugby team in 2005. He has accomplished many achievements including the 2010 Rugby Sevens squad, which won silver at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

One of his personal achievements was winning the ‘Gatorade Bolt’ an invitational 100 metre race held at Sydney Olympic Park in 2010 - named and runners also coached by the sprint champion, Usain Bolt.

Turner won the race which earned him the unofficial title of the fastest professional footballer in Australia with a time of 11.10s.  The race featured Turner’s rugby union club team mate John Grant, NRL players Jarryd Hayne, Greg Inglis, Josh Morris, Nathan Gardner and Ben Barba, plus Matt Lewis from the A-League.

Turner has determination which made him a global star and still clearly evident. Lachie’s ability to form strong professional partnerships will enable him to achieve and excel off the field just as he did on it.
Turner’s passion, commitment and contributions to rugby union at all levels of the game has never diminished.

Managing Partner Paul Bouttell said today ‘Classic Sportswear couldn’t be prouder to have one of our own home grown, Australian sporting legends lead our Rugby Union programs’.
