Christmas gives the Wallabies a rare chance for a holiday after a long year of Test and Super rugby, so what have they been up to in the break?

A few Wallabies had pre-planned a Christmas post while still in London, setting up a 'Last Supper' Christmas jumper shot earlier this month.

Will Skelton is in London, on a short-term contract with Saracens and he still got into the Christmas spirit.

Matt Giteau and his family continued their Christmas photo tradition, though Santa might not have enjoyed it as much as he did.

Scott Sio and his family took in midnight mass ahead of Christmas day, in Sydney's west.

It was a whole family affair for Kane Douglas in Yamba, with the lock sharing this snap from Christmas Day.


Great crew for chrissy this year. Cheers for the photo @jmcgheephotos #nip #poorlittlearchie #justchoking

Tevita Kuridrani and Samu Kerevi both made it back to Fiji for Christmas, spending time with their families in a special time of year.

It was a breezy Christmas celebration for Dean Mumm and wife, Sarah.
