Nick Youngquest (born 28 July, 1983 in Sydney, New South Wales) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Gateshead Thunder. He previously played for the Cronulla Sharks, St George Illawarra Dragons, Penrith Panthers and Bulldogs. He primarily plays on the wing. In late 2007, Youngquest agreed to a one-year deal with the Wests Tigers, his fourth club in six years, but failed to make the NRL squad. Youngquest was released mid-way through the 2008 season and signed with the Bulldogs as a replacement for the released Cameron Phelps. After failing to make an impact in the NRL after six seasons, he moved to play for the French rugby league team Salanque Meditérrannée PIA XIII (also known as the Pia Donkeys) following the conclusion of the 2008 NRL season. As of May 2009, Nick Youngquest now plays for English Championship team; Gateshead Thunder, in full back position. In 2006 Youngquest posed for the Naked Rugby League Calendar 2007-08 stirring controversy after his revealing pose - in which one hand is placed partially over his genitalia. The NRL reacted by distancing itself from the project, stating that they do not endorse nor authorise the calendar. The sales of the calendar helped to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
