Started from the bottom now we're here
When people say to me: Fraser, would you rather be thought of as a great player or a great entertainer? My answer’s always the same, to me, they’re not mutually exclusive.
Favourite moment: Smashing the Jam Boys at the Bangkok 10s in 2016
The Beijing Devils are my life away from work in Beijing. Best teammates on the pitch but most importantly best mates and always there for you off the pitch as well. I have made lifelong friends who are now not only in Beijing but all around the globe.
My greatest Devils moment was at the Bangkok 10’s playing with the Old Nicks. We lined up against a team lead by Bobby Skinstad (ex Springboks captain) plus a further 7 ex internationals. We ran on with a team of 10 ex Devils legends and got stuck into them from the whistle. 90 seconds into the game at nil all I go through to score a try, I’m ecstatic, Old Nicks are celebrating, crowds on their feet cheering, my greatest Devils moment, I am stoked! Unfortunately it only lasted a few seconds as the ref come up to advise me that I have scored on the 5 meter line, no try, but those few seconds where amazing!
Made For Rugby
Favourite devils moment: Bangkok 10's 2017, celebrating captain Steve's stag.
Over his time with the Devils, Judson has completed a slow migration from wing to center to flanker to second row…and, finally, this season to the sideline as unofficial Devils videographer. Named ‘Most Improved Player’ in 2015 and ‘Top Trainer’ in 2016, Judson is hoping to complete the trifecta in 2017 as ‘Devils Drinker of the Year’.
Favorite Devils moment: Lynch’s wedding…wait, does that not count as a Devils moment?
The New Louis!
Best hairline on the side
Helping fill the Devils Asian quota. Scorer of 5-yard run in tries, ideally after Poese anybody else has broken the line. Fairly tall.
Favorite Devils moment: Guangzhou & Shanghai Tours. “Coaching” the She-Devils down in Xiamen.
A great team both on and off the pitch.
Favorite Devils moment: Steven Lynch's look of horror after the "Scizerplay Incident" in Guangzhou.
I start to play rugby as school team member from 1994~1996 in college My 1st game with Aadvarks for Devils in 2002 and got one try, it is excellent memory. I just missed one season for injury in 2013.
Favorite Devils moment: Beat Shanghai Crabs in 2009 in Shanghai home court.
I joined this team for 3 seasons, where I found what is best in terms of rugby spirit. A team who can combines serious, rigorous and in same time some crazy social moments…
Favorite Devils moment: Every moment all the team understand my English….
I love the Devils, always been the greatest team on and off the pitch.
Favorite Devils moment: Tours are the best, Seoul yellow sea cup with the Hamilton Hotel pool party “recovering” session.
