Tala Gray (born 28 February 1990) is an Australian Rugby Union player who currently plays as a loose forward for the Stade Toulousain (France) in Top 14 after a couple of games for Waratahs in Super Rugby.[1][2]


Gray was a member of both the Brumbies and Waratahs academies and played 2 seasons of Shute Shield rugby for Easts before heading to France to join Top 14 side Biarritz in 2011. There he was a winner of the Amlin Challenge Cup and his performances caught the eye of his future coach Michael Cheika who signed him up for Waratahs ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby season.[3]


Gray was a member of the Australia Under 20 side that competed in the 2010 IRB Junior World Championship[4] and has also represented the Australia Sevens team.[5]
