BIO

Part of the St Eddies rugby factory, Les Makin has progressed through the ACT’s elite rugby ranks since debuting for the Australian Schoolboys back in 2010.

Makin is a real success story of the ACT’s rugby pathways having represented the region at every aged group through juniors, to schoolboys, U20, ACT XV and into the Brumbies fulltime squad.

A stocky prop, Makin has been holding the scrum up for Queanbeyan’s first grade side since 2011 earning him international honours with the Australian Under 20’s in 2012 alongside sevens stars Tom Cusack and Lewis Holland.

While sevens might not be Makin’s true calling, he has proven a master in the 15-man game representing the ACT XV for the last three seasons against the best from Australia and the South Pacific.

Makin has trained and worked with the Brumbies fulltime squad since the start of 2014. He was a big contributor to the club’s pre-season efforts and was duly rewarded with a spot in the UC Vikings fulltime squad for the 2014 and 2015 NRC. Makin was named tight-head prop of the series by Fox Sports in 2014, even scoring a quality try against the Rams during one of the Vikings televised games.

Working closely with the Brumbies all-star front-row combos like Stephen Moore, Ben Alexander, Josh Mann-Rea, and Scott Sio, Makin is almost certain to improve over the next 12 months and will push for a regular spot in the Brumbies match-day 23.
