Pete Samu’s rugby journey came full circle in 2018, the Brumbies being the Australian franchise lucky enough to get him. Indeed, when rumors circled of Samu’s wish to return to Australia having excelled cross the Tasman with the Crusaders, the Brumbies didn’t wait, securing the bruising backrow for the 2019 season.
Samu didn’t take the traditional route to the top, toiling away at the amateur level for years before getting a break with Tasman in the ITM Cup. Samu went on to make the grade in Christchurch and after bagging two Super Rugby winner’s medals in successive seasons, Samu joins the Brumbies as fully-fledged international.
In brief action, Australian fans have seen the potential in Samu in the Wallabies Gold jersey. If he can translate that into Brumbies colours, he may be the extra spark the Brumbies need to add another Super Rugby title to their cabinet.
