Teigan Power Wiki – Teigan Power Biography
Teigan Power is an Australian and best known for being the wife of Alex McKinnon a former Australian professional rugby league footballer whose career was cut short by a spinal injury suffered in a 2014 National Rugby League Premiership match against Melbourne. A Country New South Wales representative second-row, McKinnon also played lock and center. He started his career with the St. George Illawarra Dragons before moving to the Newcastle Knights in 2012.
While playing in the 2014 NRL season round 3 matches against Melbourne at AAMI Park, on March 24, her husband was injured in a dangerous tackle close to half-time with Storm players Jordan McLean, Jesse Bromwich, and Kenny Bromwich. He suffered fractures to his C4 and C5 vertebrae and was admitted to The Alfred Hospital and placed in a medically induced coma. McLean was given a seven-match suspension for the tackle. McKinnon was left a quadriplegic. He received the maximum insurance payout of $500,000 and was assured a “job for life” with the NRL. The NRL’s Round 19 in 2014 included a fundraising event called “Rise for Alex”, with $1 for every fan attending any of the eight games donated to help him pay for his continuous medical bills and rehabilitation.
Her husband started working with the Knights in January 2015 and in October 2015 became a recruitment coordinator. In December 2016, he announced that he would sue the NRL and Melbourne Storm’s Jordan McLean for compensation. In March 2017, McKinnon quit his role with the Knights to focus on public speaking. He returned to his recruitment position in November 2018. Following his injury in 2014, the two NRL clubs that McKinnon had played for in his career, the Newcastle Knights and St. George Illawarra Dragons, together instituted the Alex McKinnon Cup for the 2015 NRL Season. The trophy is contested between the two clubs on the first occasion the two sides meet in a season.
