Jesse Mogg (born 8 June 1989) is an Australian rugby union player who plays for the French Top 14 club Montpellier. His usual position is at full-back, though he can also play as a winger.[1] Mogg previously played four seasons with the Brumbies in Super Rugby. He was capped for the Australian national team in 2013.

Family and early life[edit]

Mogg was born in Brisbane and attended St Patrick's College, Shorncliffe (the same school as notable Wallaby Drew Mitchell). In 2006 he represented the Australia A Schools rugby union side.[2] He played colts rugby at the University of Queensland club.

Rugby career[edit]

Mogg joined the North Brisbane Rugby Club in the Queensland Premier Rugby competition for two years, and was selected to play for Queensland A in 2008. He then switched codes to rugby league where he played in the Toyota Cup competition as a member of the Brisbane Broncos development squad in 2009.[2]

He joined the Brumbies rugby academy in 2011. Mogg made his professional rugby union debut for the Brumbies in the first round of the 2012 Super Rugby season against the Western Force in Canberra, scoring a try in a 19-17 victory.[3] During 2013 pre-season training, Mogg was timed at under 11 seconds over 100m. Apparently, this was reported on Rugby HQ,[citation needed] making him one of the fastest players in Australian rugby.

He signed with French Top 14 club Montpellier for the 2015-16 season.[4]
