Adam Ashley-Cooper

Adam Ashley Cooper with Super Rugby trophy

After 10 years of disappointment, after playing more games than any other player without reaching the playoffs, Adam Ashley-Cooper’s dream of winning a Super Rugby title came true on Saturday.  Scoring two tries and being named Man of the Match, we thought it only fair to name him as our Player of the Week.     […]

Dave Dennis

Dave Dennis Waratahs

Scoring a fantastic try in the Waratahs win over the Chiefs in New Zealand, Dave Dennis is deserving of this week’s award. Now a mainstay for the Waratahs over the last three years, he has also been a regular in the Wallabies jersey after his debut against Scotland in 2012.   Let’s hope we get […]

Honey Badger

Nick Cummins shirtless

Starting to become one of Australia’s most beloved rugby players with his quirky post match interviews, it seemed only fair to resurrect the Pink Rugby Player of the Week section by honouring Nick Cummins aka the Honey Badger.  Bagging a lot of meat for a rejuvenated Western Force outfit, the Badger is certainly on the […]

Ryan Crotty

Ryan Crotty shirtless in locker room

Ryan Crotty’s 82nd minute try for the All Blacks in their game against Ireland sealed the perfect year with 14 wins in 14 games, the first ever team to do so in the professional era.  It’s hard to believe that he only recently made his debut for the All Blacks in August of this year. […]

Nick Cummins

Nick Cummins

Named Man of the Match in the Wallabies game against Italy on the weekend, Nick Cummins is starting to become a cult figure in Australian Rugby.  With his quirky post match interviews and his mongrel on the field, Cummins is certainly one player to watch.     DOB: 05/10/1987 Height: 1.89m Position: Wing Club: Western […]

Juan Imhoff

He also plays in France’s Top 14 competition for Racing Metro 92.     DOB: 11/05/1988 […]

Liam Messam

Liam Messam shirtless

Instrumental in the Chiefs victory over the Brumbies on Saturday night, Liam Messam is a deserved winner of our Player of the Week award.  Named man of the match, he scored the try to get the Chiefs back in the match and was devastatingly good throughout the full 80 minutes.       Player Stats […]

Israel Folau

Israel Folau shirtless

Israel Folau answered his critics (myself included) last Saturday night when he put on a blistering performance for the Wallabies against the British and Irish Lions. Scoring two amazing tries in the match, he is deservedly this week’s Player of the Week.     Player Stats DOB: 03/04/1989 Height: 1.95m Position: Fullback/Wing Club: Waratahs National […]

Luke Morahan

Luke Morahan shirtless

Luke Morahan made a lot of people stand up and take notice last Saturday night when he put on a blistering performance for the Reds against the British and Irish Lions.  In what can only be described as one of the best tries of the year so far (see video below), Morahan thoroughly deserves this […]

Anthony Allen
