2018 saw Quick head into the World Series in strong form, most notably taking out the title during the home leg of the series in Sydney 2018 where Quirk bagged two crucial tries. In addition to this, the ever present Quirk was an essential of member of the teams Silver Medal Commonwealth Games campaign as well as their Bronze medal, Rugby World Cup Seven’s campaign in San Francisco.

Signing on again until 2020 alongside close friends Shannon Parry and Sharni Williams the 2018/19 World Series will see them build into what will hopefully be Quirks second Olympic Games.
