Melbourne Storm and Fiji Bati winger Suliasi Vunivalu burst onto the scene in round 7 of the 2016 NRL season scoring two tries on debut.

In his first two seasons, Suli played in two Grand Finals with 1 premiership, scored 46 tries, record most of any player in their first two seasons, and finished 2017 by representing the Bati at the RLWC.

His biggest assets are his aerial ability, dummy half running and is an expert finisher.

Signed on with Super Rugby franchise the Reds from 2021, Vunivalu will come into contention for a Wallabies jersey which could reunite him with former Melbourne Storm winger Marika Koroibete.

In his final game for the Melbourne Storm Suliasi scored a classic Grand Final try after running 70 metres following an intercept. The try was a pivotal moment in the match and proved crucial in the end.

unlikely hero

In 2016 Suliasi Vunivalu made his NRL debut much earlier than anticipated due to a horrendous run of injuries in the Storm camp. In the same match, Josh Addo-Carr made his debut for the Tigers. From 2017-2020 The pair would go on to form the second most lethal wing combination of the NRL era, only slightly behind Lote Tuqiri and Wendall Sailor.

Dreams come true

When Suliasi was a teenager, he walked past a tv and saw the Melbourne Storm playing for the first time. Ever since that day he dreamt of playing for the Storm and playing with players like Billy Slater. Years later it would come to fruition. 

Reunited

On July 16 2022 Suliasi Vunivalu and Marika Koroibete shared the same field for the Wallabies 6 years after they did the same for the Melbourne Storm in the NRL.
