He went on to play all remaining games for the Rebels in 2012, winning both the Rookie of the Year and Matt Cockbain Rebel Rising Medal at the end of year awards event.Success followed his debut season, with a call up to Wallabies extended training squad during the mid-season Test fixtures against Scotland and Wales, which continued into the Rugby Championship and end of season Spring Tour.Cadeyrn's strengths are in his strong set piece skills and outstanding athletic potential, key areas the RaboDirect Rebels are sure to utilise.A former representative rower at the Australian Institute of Sport, Cadeyrn continues the Rebels tradition of cross code athletes who have made a successful transition to Rugby Union at an elite level. Standing 202cms tall and weighing in at 120kgs, Cadeyrn enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks at the Manly RFC in Sydney, after initially joining the club to break the monotony of his rowing training and his air conditioning apprenticeship to enjoy a social game with his mates.
