Laurie Weeks is the most capped player in the history of the Melbourne Rebels, having made 62 appearances since moving to Melbourne as a foundation Rebel in 2011 on the back of an impressive first two seasons of professional Rugby with the Reds.
His 2015 season was interrupted by a knee injury, however he returned to action in the later rounds and famously set up a first ever Super Rugby try for fellow Foundation Rebel Luke Jones with a clean break in Brisbane against the Reds, and he has recently re-signed with the Club until the end of the 2017 Super Rugby season.
Laurie is yet to score a try for the Rebels, but took particular delight in helping Jones across the line for the first time; as the only two remaining foundation Rebels, it is a bond that also saw them single one another out to celebrate the Club's first ever win overseas against the Crusaders in Christchurch in Round One.
2014 saw Laurie make his Wallaby debut in front of his adoring Melbourne fans, as Australia hosted France at Etihad Stadium, and 2015 saw him named in the Club's leadership group for the second straight season.
Laurie is studying a Bachelor of Education; his mother and younger sister are both Primary School teachers and Laurie would like to one day emulate that.
