Alicia Lucas (known as Quirky) played every minute of Australia’s Gold Medal winning campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympics. Born and bred in Wagga Wagga, NSW, Quirky played any sport she could find, before representing Australia in touch football, and then making the transition to the Australian Rugby Sevens Team. Quirky is the player that you want on your team in the dying seconds of a gold medal match. She’s meticulous in her preparation and planning, has an engine that will go for days, and an unrelenting drive that comes from somewhere deep within. She’s the teammate who will yell at you to GET UP OFF THE GROUND AND GET BACK IN THE LINE and the first one to pick you up after you’ve scored a try.

Quirky has recently moved over to live in Japan with her husband Matt who plays rugby for the Ricoh BlackRams. And they have very recently welcomed a brand new member of the family, their adorable baby girl Matilda.
