Player Bio

St.George Queensland Reds scrumhalf Nick Frisby has an impressive bag of tricks at his disposal, including a sound passing game, powerful right boot and a wicked step.

Frisby grew up in the leafy Brisbane suburb of Ashgrove, where he thrived as a youngster for storied Brisbane club GPS and Rugby nursery Marist College Ashgrove – honing his style as an energetic, opportunistic scrumhalf as likely to spot a gap and go himself as he is to pass.

The patient scrumhalf served a lengthy apprentice under former Queensland scrumhalf Will Genia before making the Number 9 jersey his own in 2016. His patience and hard work was rewarded in 2016 when he was selected to represent the Wallabies against England in the June Test window.

A tight selection battle saw him share the Number 9 duties with youngster James Tuttle. Featured for GPS toward the back end of the Queensland Premier Rugby season, helping steer them to their first grand final appearance since 2013. Turned out for Brisbane City again in the National Rugby Championship, but missed much of the season due to injury.
Took over the role as Reds’ starting scrumhalf, featuring in all 15 Super Rugby games. Made his Test debut against England at Suncorp Stadium and went on to play a further four matches for the Wallabies. Selected in the Wallaby XV against the French Barbarians in Bordeaux.
Frisby showed just how versatile he is, as he spent seven games as the side’s starting flyhalf to help cover for a number of injuries within the squad. He was the starting scrumhalf for Brisbane City throughout its undefeated National Rugby Championship campaign.
Added a further eight caps to his name, including two as starting scrumhalf. Impressed as starting scrumhalf against Melbourne Rebels, scoring two tries to spearhead a victory. Missed the final match of the season after suffering a broken jaw against the Western Force. Excelled as Brisbane City’s starting scrumhalf in the National Rugby Championship and was a key factor in the side winning the inaugural title.
First season as a full-time contracted member. Added a further nine Super Rugby appearances to his name.
Named Reds Rookie of the Year, following a season where he made his Super Rugby debut and became a regular in the match-day 22. First-choice scrumhalf with the Australian Under 20s at the Junior World Championships in South Africa. Also played an influential role in Queensland Premier Rugby side GPS’ run towards the finals series although off-season shoulder surgery forced him to miss the later rounds. All of Frisby’s skill and talent was on show when he scored his first Super Rugby try on debut against the Sharks. It began with an intercept after a strong defensive read; a pinpoint grubber kick down a narrow left touchline; the instinct to support winger Digby Ioane to receive the final pass; and the elusiveness to beat Springboks powerhouse Bismark Du Plessis in a short dart to the line.
Gained experience as a member of the QAS Reds Academy.
Standout season at club level, where he claimed the Colt of the Year award to go along with his Man of the Match performance in the annual City v Country encounter. In a watershed year, Frisby also captained the GPS Colts to the premiership.

*Please note, the scoring in the National Rugby Championship changed from seasons 1 and 2 to season 3. In 2014 and 2015 tries were worth 5 points, conversions 3 points, penalties/drop goals 2 points. In 2016, tries were worth 6 points, conversions/penalty goals/drop goals 2 points.
