Under the watchful eye of mentor Stephen Moore, Siliva Siliva has the potential to become a Wallaby front-rower in the next three years of rugby.
Strong in contact and surprisingly agile around the park, the Melbourne-born Samoan hooker has shown he’s got what it takes to play professional rugby for many years to come.
After making his long-awaited debut against the Reds in Round 1 of 2013, Siliva went on to collect another 10 caps and was named the starting hooker for the UC Brumbies during their historic win over the British and Irish Lions.
At Super Rugby level, Siliva made his starting debut against the Kings at Canberra Stadium and was one of the teams’ better performers on the night. He also claimed a try against the Force and notched up a second career start at Canberra Stadium against his home town, Melbourne in round 17.
Despite missing the first year of his fulltime contract with debilitating knee injuries, Siliva is now working at full strength and looks reinvigorated for the lay-off. At just 21 Siliva has a big future of professional rugby ahead of him.
