Biography

Hailing from the tiny country town of Theodore in Central Queensland, Rob Simmons is one of the most consistent tight five players in Australian rugby. The two-metre lock is a pillar of the Reds' forward pack and formed one half of the starting lock pairing alongside future Super Rugby teammate Kane Douglas for the majority of the Wallabies' 2015 Rugby World Cup campaign, scoring a memorable intercept try in Australia's semi-final win over Argentina. Simmons was a member of a star-studded and championship-winning Southport School First XV in 2006, which also included Reds teammate James Slipper.
