The perfect on-field leader to pass on experience and rugby lessons for young Perth Spirit players, where his energy and work ethic across the park lifts the team when needed.  Part of the Spirit leadership group with Angus Cottrell and Ian Prior, Tessmann captained Perth in five of the eight games in 2015.
When the Force hooker Ben Whittaker went down injured, Tessmann originally headed west on a short-term contract after playing ten Super Rugby games for the Melbourne Rebels between 2011 and 2012, and has played more than forty games in the blue since.
