Biography

Joe Powell had a meteoric rise into Wallabies contention. He was arguably the biggest bolter in a decade when selected as part of the extended Australian squad for the 2016 Test series against England, admitting he thought he was being pranked. To that point of his career Powell had played less than an hour of Super Rugby. The Marist College, Canberra graduate, whose Wallaby alumni include Rugby World Cup winners Rob Egerton and Joe Roff, had to wait another before he claimed his first Test cap, against Fiji in Melbourne.
