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
Best physique on the team and a natural sprinter. Very dangerous over short distances.
Favorite Devils Memory: Sticking a thumb up then not turning up (homework)
Favorite Devils Moment: Bath and nap time after we beat Shanghai
Proud scrummager for the best team in the North! Loyal teammate to some hellish rugby players that I'm honored to play with!
Favourite Devils Moments: Enjoying the banter, chat (most of which is terrible) and victory beers on the bus!
Favorite Devils Moment: Scoring on my debut looking pretty in pink (it takes a real man to wear pink）
Background: Representing Fiji on the team while studying Renewable Energy at the Beijing University of Technology
Favorite Devils Memory: Discovering what snow is on my debut
Representing Samoa on the team. I didn't send Toby a description for this bio as I was too busy finding a white background to take this photo. (it's also great for Tinder).
Proud to be representing Vanuatu on the team and teaching the boys my national anthem #yumi
I am an islander from the pacific, playing rugby is always something that I love doing and am now very thankful to be playing with the Beijing Devils, Tambe'ana!!
Best Devils Moment: Got to be that last minute victory over the Aardvarks in the Beijing cup final.
Prop from Texas that is excited to still be running out with the young lads and playing rugby until I’m dragged off the pitch.
Only Qingdao-based Devil and happy to make the regular trips to be part of the best rugby club in China!
Best Devils Moment: Our absolute demolition of Shanghai in the 2018 Yellow Sea Cup Final, my first time playing against our arch rivals!
Your average wing who has gained weight so has had to move to the front row.
Favorite Devils Moment: On tour and what happens on tour stays on tour.
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.
Second best Welshman in the squad waiting in the wings (quite literally) til the better bloke retires!
Best known for being the team’s best (read, worst) Logistics Manager, running kind of fast, and eating heaps of chicken curry after every training.
Favorite Devils Moment: The feeling of beating Shanghai just hours after landing in Beijing after a two year absence from the Devils. It’s been an absolute honor to play for this club.
A simple country rugby player and a poor man's Jamie Lannister who loves nothing more than Shanghai crab chuanr.
Favorite Devils Moment: Teaming up with the Yiwu Mustangs to bring home the Wok from the 2019 Xiamen Tournament.
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.
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.
Wason is my Dad, no really!
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….
