Rod Kafer was a rugby union player for the ACT Brumbies and the Australian Wallabies. He is remembered by Brumbies fans for kicking a drop-goal in the final minute in a 2001 game against the Cats giving the Brumbies a one point win. He now works for Fox Sports as a rugby commentator and has a weekly segment on the show "Inside Rugby" called Kafe's Chalkboard. He attended Canberra Grammar School in his youth.
Kafer was the first player to have received winners medals from the major Southern and Northern Hemisphere rugby tournaments, the Super 12 with the ACT Brumbies in 2001 and the Heineken Cup with the Leicester Tigers in 2002. The only other player to have achieved this is Doug Howlett, enjoying success with the Auckland Blues in 2003 and Munster in 2008.
