With 73 games for the QLD Reds and 35 caps for the Wallabies, Samu Kerevi is one of the most damaging centres in World Rugby.
Known for his strong carries and offloading ability, Kerevi was the go-to man in the Wallabies attack in 2019. A year that proved to be his finest yet after being named full time captain and running second only to Marika Koroibete for the John Eales medal.Embed from Getty Images
The Viseisei native currently plays in the Japan Top League for Suntory Sungoliath.
2021 – Kerevi was selected to represent Australia at the Olympics. The Australian coach later mentioned he probably should have used Kerevi a bit earlier in games as he was their most damaging player at the Olympics.
Following the Olympics he was recalled into the Wallabies squad for the Rugby Championship. In his two games since his return it is quite evident that the Wallabies desperately needed the gamebreaker in their backline.Embed from Getty Images
He’s constantly getting them on the front foot and creating momentum and even second phase play with his offloading ability. He was instrumental in the Wallabies victory over the Springboks making the most metres for the match and equal most defenders beaten.
On the club side of things Suntory went as far as the Top League final where they lost to the Wild Knights. Kerevi was injured and did not play but he scored more tries in the Top League (7) than any other Fijian.Embed from Getty Images
Samu was born in Viseisei, Vuda to Sai and Nimi Kerevi. He was raised by his Grandparents, first in the Solomon Islands but left due to a coup on the Island. On their way back to Fiji there was a also a coup in Fiji which led to him making a life in Australia.
“My family was doing it really tough back in Fiji at that time and it was a lot different, the environment that they had, but now I’m really grateful that god’s come into our lives and changed that for my family and it’s just awesome to have the opportunities that I do have here in Australia.
“That was a big reason why I play so hard, for family and for Australia, that’s given me so much.” Samu Kerevi to Rugby AU
