It's rare we get to see rugby players out of their boots and socks, but the Rugby Australia Awards is the rare chance to do just that.

Wallabies, Wallaroos, men's and women's sevens players and the next generation of Aussie talent were joined by some of the hardest-working volunteers in the country as well.

How did they all shape up on the gold carpet? Let's have a look at some of the gold carpet entrances.
