Tom Carter is a former Australian rugby union player for the New South Wales Waratahs. He played inside centre and made his Super Rugby debut in 2008.[1]

He attended Knox Grammar School and The King's School, playing in the Knox 1st XV from 1999 to 2000.[citation needed]

Carter is regarded by Greg Martin to be one of the most disliked players in Super Rugby[2] but has been backed up by his teammates.[3] In July 2013, he retired from rugby.[4]

After many successful years as a senior member of the Sydney University Rugby Club, Carter now spends his time as Chairman of Selectors of the Sydney University Cricket Club. His insight and depth to being a professional athlete delivers a great perspective on attitude and behaviour amongst the club. Carter will continue this role in 2014/15 after playing a role in SUCC winning a Club Championship, and premierships in First, Second and Sixth Grade.
