Prodigious Melbourne Rebels backrower Sean McMahon burst on to the international scene in 2014, showing class and maturity beyond his tender age as he made three Test appearances for the Wallabies as a 20-year-old. In a remarkable rookie year, McMahon was named Super Rugby Rookie of the Year, Buildcorp NRC player of the tournament and Australian U20s player of the year. Man of the match performances against the USA and Uruguay in the lead up to and during the Rugby World Cup reinforced his bright prospects during the Rugby World Cup. The Brisbane-born flanker has also won a Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist with the Australian Men’s Sevens team. In 2015, McMahon was once again one of the Rebels standout performers, prompting many within the game to tout him as a captain-in-waiting of the Melbourne club. McMahon extended his contract for two further seasons with the Rebels and Australian Rugby and is considered one of the brightest young talents in the game.
