Norm Carr is an Australian former rugby league footballer of the 1970s and '80s. A Queensland State of Origin representative forward, he played his entire club career in the Brisbane Rugby League Premiership for Souths and Wests, winning grand finals with both.

Biography[edit]

Born in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales,[1] Carr played for Brisbane Wests in the QRL State League. He scored a try in Brisbane's 1979 Amco Cup final loss to the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

Carr's three-game sojourn in the Maroon jumper began off the bench in 1980, but didn't play as he wasn't called upon by coach John McDonald.[2] He actually played in 1981. He was elevated to the starting XIII for the second and third games of the 1982 series. Carr played at lock forward as Queensland wrapped up the series with victories. Carr captained Souths Magpies to victory in the 1985 Brisbane Rugby League premiership, scoring a try against Wynnum-Manly in the grand final.
