In modern Rugby, it’s not enough to have one good set of props. The Brumbies have two elite props in the run-on side, but they are ably backed up by several excellent front-rowers. Having a guy like Les Leuluaialii-Makin coming off the bench is what championship squads are made of.
Built in a lab for scrummaging, Leuluaialii-Makin is a gifted tight head, and his work rate around the park continues to improve. A local product, Les had some stellar performances at club level with the Queanbeyan Whites in 2018 but was usually required for Brumbies duty. Leuluaialii-Makin even made a brief appearance off the bench on Tour in South Africa as a hooker when Brumbies sticks were depleted.
As he always does, he made the best of his opportunity and did a job for his side. If the Brumbies are to get back to the playoffs, Leuluaialii-Makin will have an important role to play.
