Nic Berry (born 13 March 1984 in Brisbane) is a former Australian rugby union footballer. He was forced to retire in 2012 due to a series of concussions.

Career[edit]

Berry was educated at Ipswich Grammar School in Queensland. He represented Australia at rugby union in the under-21 national team at the under-21 World Cup in Argentina. He made his Super 12 debut for the Queensland Reds against the Hurricanes in 2005. He started four games in 2005, and played another five off the bench. He made his run-on debut at halfback replacing the injured Josh Valentine in a match against the Bulls. He was also part of the Sunnybank team that won the 2005 Queensland Premier Rugby trophy.

In July 2007, it was rumoured that Berry was looking at offers from overseas and requesting a release from S14 and ARC commitments. He then left the Queensland Reds and moved to Racing Métro 92 Paris. Berry joined London Wasps for the 2010/2011 season on a 2-year contract.[2] After some good performances he was awarded with a new contract.[3]

Berry retired at the end of the 2011/2012 season at the advice of his physician after sustaining a series of concussions.[4]
