Scott Higginbotham scored the first of the Reds 5 tries during their convincing 32-16 over the Waratahs on Saturday night. His amazing performance helped the Reds get into the Super Rugby finals for the second year in a row and is the one of the reasons why he is this week’s Player of the Week.
Having already won the Super Rugby title last year, Higginbotham will be hoping to be part of a Reds team that goes back to back. Heading to the Rebels for the 2013 season, he will be sorely missed at the Reds but will be a huge addition to the Melbourne based team.
