Having featured in every match in 2011, gaining five starts and playing under All Black legend Greg Somerville, 2012 ended for Weeks in the sixth round when he suffered a serious shoulder injury that required a full reconstruction. It was a devastating moment for Weeks, given many had him pinned for Wallaby honours that season.One of the most outgoing and personable members of the squad, Laurie is a similarly effervescent presence on the pitch. Technically solid and a powerful scrummager, he is also extremely mobile, having an uncanny knack to always pop up in the right place at the right time.Having been crowned Super Rugby Rookie of the Year in 2009, Laurie is now one of the Club’s senior players at only 26 years of age. The tighthead prop will remain at the club until the end of the 2015 season and will be an integral part of the Club’s future development, both on and off the field.Laurie is a tenacious worker, and will be striving to claim his first test for the Wallabies in 2013, having been selected in the Wallabies extended playing squad and Australian Barbarians in recent times.Laurie is studying a Bachelor of Education, and is without a doubt one of the most popular members of the RaboDirect Rebels squad.
