The G&GR Social Pages: Melbourne Rebels


The Melbourne Rebels’ recent trip to South Africa was noteworthy for all the wrong reasons, and it’s easy to forget that 99 per cent of the Rebels’ social media usage was, and still is, awesome. Hopefully this will remind us of the good stuff too!

And what other team would form a Trolley Train through an airport after a hellish travel day?


Frisky Physio

The Rebels take a very hands-and-other-body-parts-on approach to musculoskeletal treatment and maintenance…

Yes, the first photo is a Vuna-Beale stack, both with phones in hand. Hmmm….

Shark Talk

No, we won’t be rehashing the pain and agony. [Well, we might be bringing up some bad memories for Luke Jones*]. But we’re talking about actual sharks, not the men who embody the spirit of sharks.

Shark Week


*Luke Jones suffered from pretty nasty seasicknes. My favourite photo is the one at the bottom. Isn’t it great to have supportive teammates?  This photo is courtesy of Rory Sidey (@RorySidey)



Man of the Year Nomination

Congratulations to Laurie Weeks, the People’s Champ, who has been nominated as the Social Pages’ Man of the Year 2013. I think these photos explain why.

Laurie Weeks

These are my own opinions based on my own observations and preferences. They are not necessarily the opinions of everyone in the world, they may not be yours, and they may not even be the opinions of other GAGR writers. That's ok. You can find me on twitter (@catriona_a) or on Instagram (same username). A warning for any potential Instagram followers though: I am boring as batshit.
