Rugby in Australia can be very competitive as you can imagine, giving place to great teams to rank in the league. Within some of the great teams in the league, the Melbourne Rebels are one of them.
Formerly known as Rabo Direct Melbourne Rebels due to sponsorship reasons, this awesome team is one of the newest teams in the league.
Here, you will have a brief review of everything you need to know about Melbourne Rebels.
Nowadays the Melbourne Rebels is one of the most known teams in Victoria, Australia, and they’re adding more and more fans to their ranks as time goes. Their home stadium is the AAMI Park, a stadium that can hold up to 29,500 people and it is located in the heart of Melbourne city.
It’s expected that Melbourne Rebels have a different season and do way better than in previous years. Their fans are still waiting for that big day since they never made it to the finals before. Currently, their best role in the league has been when they finished on the 10th place on the board.
As we Rebels fans know, they compete in a very competitive league, as teams from South Africa, New Zealand, and Australia form this league. Although Melbourne Rebels league performance is very poor, they were outstanding in their last Super Rugby attendance.
Currently, the coach David Wessels who is taking the team in a good row while they play the 2nd Australian conference is running the team.
At the same time, their captain is the experienced player Dane Haylett-Petty who along with Reece Hodge is taking the team on a great journey. The Melbourne Rebels remains as top scorers in the league.
The team colours are based on the local city navy blue colour. While the five stars located in the upper right side of the kit are white, Red has also been incorporated to give the Rebels their uniqueness. With five big blue stripes, white is the predominant colour for the away kit.
Finally, I can only say that this team’s future is looking promising, giving me and other fans of the team an incentive to keep rooting for them. If you still haven’t decided on your favourite team, this great squad will make you feel proud.
