Now Australia’s premier play-maker, Matt Toomua is a prime example of persisting for reward.

Equally as comfortable in the 10 or 12 jerseys, Toomua links beautifully with both Nic White and Christian Lealiifano and the three have been the lynch-pin of much of the Brumbies success over the last three seasons.

Through his first five seasons of Super Rugby, Toomua injury and selection prevented Toomua from making more than nine appearances in any given season. But in 2013 under then Head Coach, Jake White, Toomua was finally afforded enough playing time to prove he has what it takes.

Toomua has been almost faultless on the field since his breakthrough season, causing havoc in Pretoria with Tevita Kuridrani to send the Brumbies to their first Super Rugby Final in a decade.

He backed that up in 2014 with another two brilliant efforts – first against the Force and then the Chiefs to steer his side within a win of a second Super Final.

Toomua’s hat-trick of tries against the Western Force was the club’s first since Mark Gerrard claimed three in the 2004 Final, cementing his name in the record books as one of just eight Brumbies players to have cross three times in one match.

One the back of his 2013 season Toomua found himself debuting for the Wallabies against the All Blacks and has since gone on to claim Test caps against every major rugby-playing nation on the planet.
