Biography

Noah Lolesio joins the senior ranks at the Brumbies for the first time this season, having trained full time with the squad last year.

The Auckland-born playmaker made the move to the ACT straight from school, hoping the Brumbies was his best path to Super Rugby.

In the preceding two years, Lolesio has played for the Brumbies Runners a number of times, won a John I Dent Cup with Tuggeranong Vikings where he was named Man of the Match, captivated crowds with the Canberra Vikings at NRC level and has helped guide the Junior Wallabies to within one score of winning an U20 World Cup.

The next obvious stage for Lolesio to grace is Super Rugby, and with Christian Lealiifano’s departure, many believe Lolesio is the natural successor.

Time will tell if that’s true, but don’t be surprised if in 12 months’ time we’re talking about Noah Lolesio being a fringe-Wallaby.
