Reliable lock Rob Simmons has become a mainstay in the Wallabies starting line-up. The lineout general was a crucial part of the Wallabies’ forward pack, directing the set piece during the Rugby World Cup. Simmons missed two Rugby Championship matches with a hand injury but featured in every other Wallabies Test in 2015. Simmons was also an anchor and standout performer during the 2014 Rugby Championship and Spring Tour and deservedly achieved his 50th cap in the final Spring Tour match against England. Simmons celebrated success early in his domestic career when the Reds claimed the 2011 Super Rugby title and in recent seasons has assumed a stronger leadership role, becoming stand-in captain for the start of the year. The 26-year-old has also inked a multi-year contract extension with the Reds and Australian Rugby through to the end of 2017.
