Biography

A stunning 2019 season culminated in Folau Fainga’a equaling the record for most tries in a Super Rugby campaign by a hooker when he forced his way over for his twelfth try of a productive campaign.

 

It came as no surprise to those who have followed the progress of Fainga’a, who headed to Japan as part of the Wallabies 2019 Rugby World Cup squad, having been, unarguably in our opinion, the best hooker in the competition.

 

Less than two years ago, the Brumbies rake was working as a laborer in Sydney, dreaming of Super Rugby and, after being offered a shot in Canberra, grabbed it with both hands playing seventeen matches in total last year to take his career tally to thirty.

 

Astonishingly effective at the back of the ubiquitous rolling maul, and a devastating runner in the loose, Fainga’a is set to wow spectators with his unique style for many years to come.
