Biography

One of the few remaining local players who can trace back to the 2007 Australian Rugby Championship, Alexander brings immense experience at Super Rugby and Test level to the NRC, and to a pack of young Canberra forwards eager to learn the dark arts of scrummaging.

And that experience will be put to good use in the NRC – “I might just have to follow the ref around the field, so that when he blows for a scrum, I’ll already be standing there,” Alexander told rugby.com.au of the requirements to be packed within 30 seconds. You can’t learn that sort of lesson overnight.
