Exciting young lock and known prankster Jeffries continues his development at the Rebels, adding to his tally after making his Super Rugby debut in 2014. Originally signed to the Rebels' Extended Playing Squad in 2014, Jeffries did enough while on a trial to convince Tony McGahan to recruit him. 

The former Nudgee College and Sydney University young gun has been a stand-out performer for Melbourne University in the Dewar Shield, but his game has gone to new levels in two seasons of the NRC, playing all but one match for the Melbourne Rising, and playing a key role in their undefeated run to the 2014 minor premiership.
