Weeks stretches Rebels stay until 2019
Weeks is set to break the club games record this season, surpassing Luke Jones’ 73-game mark reached last year.
Originally a Queensland Red, Weeks opted to move south and sign with the startup franchise, now becoming one of its most important members on and off the field.
“The decision to re-sign with the Rebels was an easy one, I love Melbourne and I love the team,” Weeks said.
“I’m incredibly proud to see how far this team has come from humble beginnings to genuine contenders every time we take the field and I look forward to being a part of an exciting future for the Melbourne Rebels.”
Rebels coach Tony McGahan said Weeks was a valuable character to have around the club.
“Laurie is the heart and soul of the Melbourne Rebels,” head coach Tony McGahan said.
“Laurie has developed into a genuine leader at the club and continues to be a role model for his peers with the dedication, spirit and attitude he brings to the Rebels organisation on and off the field every day.”
