One of the best hooking talents coming through Australian rugby has struggled to stay on the park in the last two years, with Siliva Siliva undergoing three knee surgeries and a reconstruction of his ankle.

It’s been a difficult stretch for Siliva, but through the tough times the young hooker has remained motivated and positive and he is highly regarded and popular member of the Brumbies squad.

Time off the pitch will almost certainly prolong the young hooker’s career, with the likely outcome for Siliva another 10 years professional rugby.

Over a three year stint with the Brumbies, Siliva has accumulated 16 games, including a starting appearance against the Kings in 2013 and a cracking try against his former side, the Western Force, later that season.

Growing up in suburban Melbourne, Siliva managed to progress through the Victorian Schools program to be one of the southern state’s most promising products in 2008. He was selected in the Australian Schools side of 2008, the Australian U20s in 2010 and 2011 and offered a fulltime gig with the Western Force for their 2011 Super Rugby season.

Siliva arrived in Canberra with the Brumbies in 2012, but injury prevented him making an appearance for the club until the Reds match in 2013.

Unfortunately for the Brumbies, 2014 will be Siliva’s final year in the Australian Capital after the prodigal son announced he would return to Melbourne and the Rebels at the conclusion of the 2015 Super Rugby season, where is family is still based.
