Adam Mogg (born 31 July 1977 in Toowoomba, Queensland) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 2000s. A Queensland State of Origin representative Centre, he played in the National Rugby League for Australian clubs the Canberra Raiders and Parramatta Eels, as well as in the Super League for French club Catalans Dragons.

Playing career[edit]

Mogg spent five years with the Redcliffe Dolphins, participating in four grand finals in the Queensland Cup and winning the club's player of the year award in 2001, before being scouted in 2002 by the Parramatta Eels.[citation needed]

In 2004, the Canberra Raiders picked him up and he became a regular member of the squad.

Normally a centre, Mogg was selected as a winger for Queensland for games II and III of the 2006 State of Origin series; he was included after Greg Inglis was replaced due to injury. Mogg scored two tries on his Origin debut and a further try in game III. He was one of the oldest players to make an Origin debut.[citation needed]

Mogg was selected to play for Catalans at stand-off half back in the 2007 Challenge Cup Final in which the Dragons were defeated by St. Helens 30-8.[3] He was selected at centre in the 2007 season's Super League Dream Team. The Queenslander grew in confidence in 2008, and in May 2008 signed a contract extension which tied him to the Dragons until 2011. In Perpignan he played the majority of his rugby at centre, but also played at stand-off.

On 22 March 2010 it was announced that Adam had been released from his contract and would rejoin Canberra Raiders.[4][5]

Mogg retired from the game at the end of 2010, scoring only one try for the season.

Coaching career[edit]

Mogg coached the Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles in the 2011 Queensland Cup.[6] He was then involved with the Redcliffe Dolphins, before being signed by former teammate Andrew McFadden as an assistant coach for the New Zealand Warriors.[7]
