Rebel Rant Medal: Rnd 17

  • Rebel Rant Medal: Rnd 17

It was a dour performance to end the Rebels home season off when they lost 36-20 to the Reds, but as always, we have picked out the best three players to give them votes towards FansUnites's Rebel Rant Medal for player of the year.

1 vote: Bryce Hegarty

Again, no surprises to see this name of the team sheet and for the same reasons. Looking to create, putting in some good passes, exploiting oppositions players with his speed, etc. The usual Hegarty stuff. The highlight from the flyhalf was his try in the second half when he pushed a kicked passed Lachie Turner and ran half the field to retreive it in the in-goal. A magnificent display of his blossoming skill.

What a month this young man has had or even, what a year. He captained the Australia U20 side to a 5th place finish at the Junior World Championship (the Aussies were desperately unlucky not to finish in the top 4, being edged out of the semifinals on a mere points difference), and then returns to the Rebels to start in this game. The future holds big things for McMahon, and a good performance in this game gave us glimpses of what he's capable of. Rugged tackling and true grit in the clinches won him 13 tackles through the match; the most for the Rebels.

A nice try at the end to cap off his evening pushed him up to grab the three points this week. Two linebreaks and six tackles highlighted his evening, but he gave it his all once more and that has been the story of his season. A great versatile player, he has formed a sound partnership with Tamati Ellison in the middle of the park "The Bash Brothers", and that's exactly what they do.
