Darren Maroon is an Australian rugby league player who represented Lebanon in the 2000 World Cup.

Playing career[edit]

Maroon started his career with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, playing in 52 games between 1987 and 1992. He then spent 1993 with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles before returning to the Rabbitohs. In 1995 and 1996 he was part of the Sydney City Roosters.[1]

Maroon then joined the Sydney Bulls in the Metropolitan Cup. In 1999 he played for Lebanon and helped them qualify for the 2000 World Cup.

Maroon was selected as Lebanon's captain for the 2000 World Cup. However, before the tournament started Maroon failed a drugs test.[2] He was later cleared to play when a tribunal ruled that he took the banned substance unwittingly in a sports drink.[3] Maroon played three matches at the World Cup.

In 2011 Maroon coached the Sydney Bulls in the Bundaberg Red Cup.[4]
