2012 was the perfect initiation to professional Rugby Union for Nic Stirzaker, playing four Super Rugby games and turning in stellar performances for the Rebel Rising. His efforts saw him win the post-season Rebel Rising Best Player Award, with many predicting big things for him in the future.Blessed with great speed off the mark, Nic is the quickest player over 20 and 40 metres in the Rebels squad, with his 20 metre record of 2.71 seconds, a time better than the quickest ever time at AFL draft camp. He also leads the Club in all agility testing, but it’s his service at the ruck that is his strongest attribute, with the careful guidance of former Wallaby and Rebels halfback Sam Cordingley. In a competitive environment strongly endorsed by Damien Hill for every position, Nic will provide plenty of impetus for the halfback role against incumbent Wallaby half Nick Phipps, and utility back Richard Kingi.Born in England to South African parents, Nick was raised in Australia from the age of two, where he developed his love of rugby at Knox Grammar in Sydney.The 20 year old is a Commerce Law student who hails from the Sydney University club. He was a part of the Tim Davidson captained Sydney University team that won the Shute Shield Title in 2012, and has already shown leadership qualities amongst the new generation of Rebels players.
