Since bursting onto the scene in 2008, Ben Alexander has become Australia’s most dependable prop. Equally as efficient at either loose or tight-head, Alexander has clocked up 63 Super Rugby caps in record time and is fifth on the Brumbies all-time consecutive games-played list, behind George Smith, Bill Young, Nic Henderson and George Gregan. A regular Wallaby since making his debut in 2008, Alexander will shoot for 50 Test caps while on spring tour. Alexander has had a steady influence over the national side for the last four years and is now a veteran of four European Spring Tours, countless inbound Tests and the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. A prolific try-scorer, Alexander has crossed the line more times than any other Brumbies prop. He was the Brumbies highest try-scorer in 2010 with seven and boasts more five pointers in his career that renowned speedsters like Adam Ashley-Cooper, James O’Connor, Rod Davies, Henry Speight and Nic Cummins. Alexander’s first taste of international rugby came through the Australian Under 21’s in 2005, where he was led by current Brumbies skipper Ben Mowen. A proud representative of the Uni-Norths Owls in Canberra’s John I Dent Cup, Alexander has continued his involvement with the club, playing for the club in 2012 and regularly helping out with training.
