Izack Rodda

20th Aug 1996 2.02m/119kg No 4 Lock

Rodda is a towering and broad chested young man, who is not afraid to use his physical advantage to better his team. He played brilliantly for Australia in the side’s victory over New Zealand at the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship.

An important part of the 2016 Australia U20s, he was a part of the Aussie U20s side that defeated New Zealand for the first time at U20s level at the Oceania Rugby U20s Championship on the Gold Coast.

Having represented both the Queensland and Australian Under 20s, Rodda was named in the Queensland Reds 2017 Super Rugby squad.

Rodda enjoyed a fine start to his Super Rugby career as he debuted for the Reds in the opening round against the Sharks, he went onto make 11 other appearances for the side, scoring his first try.

In August 2017, he was named in the Wallabies squad for the Rugby Championship. The then 20-year-old stamped himself as a star of the future with a breakout 2017 for the Reds.

Known to be aggressive and abrasive on the field, the young Queenslander has plenty of potential in the gold jersey since winning his first cap.

Rodda featured in all 13 of the Reds 2017 Super Rugby matches and made three further appearances for the Wallabies.

The young second rower featured for the Wallabies in the June Tests against Ireland and took his Super Rugby cap tally to 28 by the end of the 2018 season.

Following the win over the Springboks in the Rugby Championship, Rodda signed a new deal with the Wallabies and Reds keeping him in Ballymore until the end of 2020.

Rodda heads into the 2018 Rugby Championship with 7 test caps.
