In just one season, Pete Samu has become a firm fan favourite with the Brumbies faithful.
The two-time Super Rugby Champion dazzled fans with his ball carrying ability, breakdown dominance, mullet and tucked jersey.
Samu is in so many ways, a real throwback player.
His route to Super Rugby was far from conventional.
The Melbourne-bred backrow was forced to work for his chances, travelling first to Brisbane then to Cornwall in England, searching for a shot at the next level.
It was Samu’s play for Randwick which earned him a place on Tasman’s squad for the 2014 ITM Cup season.
That lead to the Crusaders picking him up where he collected his winners’ medals, playing a crucial role in their championship seasons.
The Wallabies and the Brumbies were clearly paying attention and made sure Samu retuned to home soil for 2019, where he was immense for the Brumbies. Expect the same in 2020.
