Are you the Wallabies Ultimate Fan?

Australian Rugby Union is looking for the Qantas Wallabies ‘Ultimate Fan’ in 2012 with the development of a new look Rugby Rewards Facebook application.

After the success of the globally recognised Rugby Rewards Facebook application in 2011 ARU has developed a new look app that gives Qantas Wallabies fans the opportunity to get closer to their heroes than ever before.
In 2012 it has taken on an exciting new look, which will allow fans to compete against one another in a bid to win a spot on the Qantas Wallabies ‘Ultimate Team’ and in the process be crowned the inaugural ‘Rugby Rewards Ultimate Fan’.
The 2012 Rugby Rewards will be launched prior to the Qantas Wallabies first Test of the 2012 Castrol EDGE Wales Tour on Saturday 9 June at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane.
Via the Qantas Wallabies Facebook page, fans will be able to track their points tally through their own Facebook page and see where they sit – against others – in the bid to be crowned the inaugural ‘Ultimate Fan’.
Fans will have the chance to accumulate points by doing what they love – talking about and watching Rugby content across Facebook and Twitter; and attending any of this year’s Castrol EDGE Test matches.
They will also get the chance to gain exclusive access to a range of public and tiered rewards as part of the Rugby Rewards initiative.
These tiered rewards will be based off the individual fans level of interaction with the Qantas Wallabies and their Official Partners across Facebook and Twitter.
Fans not participating in the ‘Ultimate Fan’ challenge will also have the opportunity to take advantage of a number of different rewards with a range of ‘public rewards’ offered to all fans across the Test season.
At the conclusion of the 2012 domestic Test season the Fan with the most amount of points will be crowned the inaugural Qantas Wallabies ‘Ultimate Fan’ and will receive a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
As part of Rugby’s prestigious John Eales Medal evening, on Thursday 1 November, the ‘Ultimate Fan’ will be presented with a bespoke hand-crafted Medal as part of the awards ceremony on Rugby’s night of nights.
In addition, the top 15 participating Rugby Rewards fans, including the ‘Ultimate Fan’ will have the opportunity to be a part of the Rugby Rewards Ultimate Team.
The Rugby Rewards ‘Ultimate Team’ will be chosen, like the ‘Ultimate Fan’ based on the amount of points they have amassed at the conclusion of the 2012 domestic Tests season.
Members of the ‘Ultimate Team’ will receive a one-off experience to rub shoulders with their Qantas Wallabies heroes at the squad’s training ground at Coogee, a night at Crowne Plaza, Sportscraft and BlackBerry products, Le Coq Sportif footwear and a Rugby Rewards ‘Ultimate Team’ photo.
The team will also be gifted their very own unique team kit, including a one-off Qantas Wallabies jersey courtesy of KooGa and The Wallaby Shop.
In the coming weeks ARU will begin to release a series of online video content explaining the changes to the revamped Rugby Rewards application.
Using Qantas Wallabies players and Australian Rugby’s favourite mascot Wally the Wallaby fans will be shown just how to use, interact and win with the all new Rugby Rewards.
