Back for a second season at Shielfield, Roo Boy is also the new Bandits’ skipper. First visited these shores when he joined Edinburgh in 2001, the year after he was crowned Australian under-16 champion. Lifted the Premier League title with the Monarchs and the Elite League with Coventry and also represented Australia in the World Cup. Twice Australian Under-21 title winner and, as an ACU Licence holder won the behind-closed-doors 2020 British Final at Belle Vue. Retired in in 2021 after doubling up with Poole and Wolverhampton but the call of the black and gold proved strong and he joined us in the Borders in 2023, ending the season as number one.
