Career Statistics



Norm Carr’s entire club career was spent in the Brisbane Rugby League, the brilliant lock winning three premierships, two with Wests (in 1975 and ]1976) and one with Souths, in 1985.

He was captain of a Souths team coached by Wayne Bennett, and rated massive underdogs against Wynnum Manly, only to defy the critics with a 10-8 win, with Carr scoring the Magpies only try. That Souths team included future Origin stars, Gary Belcher and Peter Jackson.

Carr played four games for the Maroons in 1980-1981 and it would be hard to find a more passionate Queenslander.

Norm made his Queensland debut - against New South Wales - in 1976, and went on to play another 10 matches under the residential rules. His younger brother, Wayne also represented Queensland, from Wests, in 1979.

Norm made his Origin debut off the bench in 1981, and then started in Game II and Game III of the 1982 series.

Norm's son Cameron, carried on his family’s proud sporting legacy, winning two gold Paralympic medals in wheelchair rugby. Cameron, who had been coached by his father at Souths Sunnybank, had signed to play with the Sydney Roosters in 1997, after representing the Under 19 Queensland side. But a car accident in Brisbane left him a paraplegic.
