Liam Gill is a professional rugby union player for the Queensland Reds.[2] He was born in Melbourne and lived in the United States before playing junior Rugby in Adelaide.[3] In 2010 Gill became the youngest ever to player to compete in the IRB Junior World Championship during which his Australian side lost to New Zealand in the final.[4] Gill was a member of the Australia U20s team that competed in the 2011 IRB Junior World Championship, along with fellow Queenslanders: Joel Faulkner, Tevita Kuridrani, Matt Lucas, Simon Morahan, Eddie Quirk, Siliva Siliva, Dom Shipperley, and Kimami Sitauti.[5]

Gill was named captain of the Australia U20s side that competed in the 2012 IRB Junior World Championship.[4]

In 2012 Liam Gill made his debut for the Australian Rugby Team known as the 'Wallabies'. As well as being this year's Australian Under-20 captain, Gill became the 861st player to have represented Australia. The Open Side Flanker (number seven) is a crucial player for the Queensland Reds as he has been called "the best pilferer in the game".
