Monday Morning Man: Jason Woodward!

Jason Woodward is a 23-year-old rugby pro from New Zealand and moved to Australia in early 2013 to join the Rebels for the Super Rugby season.

His team had a big win on Friday, an upset victory over the Brumbies.

I do not understand a thing about rugby so have no idea what the heck this report in The Australian means but maybe you can figure it out: The Kiwi-born fullback has his eyes on a Wallabies jersey one day, and he will do his chances no harm with performances like his round-seven effort.

Woodward scored a Rebels record 27 points, eclipsing James O’Connor’s previous mark of 24, as his side upset the Brumbies 32-24 at AAMI Park on Friday night.

His points came through a barnstorming try, when he fended off two tackles and carried two defenders over the line to put the Rebels in front, as well as two conversions and six penalty goals.

All up Woodward had eight runs for 94 metres, made one linebreak, had a game-high seven tackle busts and chipped in with one offload.

He played for the Wellington Lions previously.
