BIO

A top class scrummager with an unbelievable engine, Allan Alaalatoa has proven himself as one of the best tighthead props not only in Australia, but in World Rugby.

The son of former Samoan international Vili Alaalatoa, Allan was a star at Newington College in Sydney and went on to represent Australian Schoolboys before graduating at the age of 17 in 2011. The 23-year old would go on to represent the Australian U20’s in three straight Junior World Cups as well as representing Southern Districts in the Shute Shield.

Alaalatoa made the move to the Brumbies in 2014 at the tender age of 19, a baby by prop standards, and immediately showed his immense talent and potential in the John I Dent Cup with the Uni-Norths Owls.

The prop would earn a surprise call up to the side for the Qualifying Final clash against the Chiefs at GIO Stadium and he made his debut off the bench.

Alaalatoa would go on to establish himself as one of the best young props in the world, starring for the Brumbies in Super Rugby and earning his Wallabies debut in 2016 before cementing his spot as Australia’s premier tighthead prop in 2017.

Alaalatoa started every game he was available for during the 2018 season, continuing to stellar form from the previous season.  That was no more evident than in the 45-21 win over the Reds at GIO Stadium in Round 8 when Alaalatoa’s all-round game, including some brutal hits in open-play, helped pave the way for a man of the match performance.

Allan continued his fine form throughout the rest of the Super Rugby season anchoring the Brumbies scrum which was to provide the platform for the late-season improvement in performances as the backs ran amok.

His superb season was acknowledged at the 2018 Brett Robinson Awards when Alaalatoa, for the second season in a row, brought home the Forward of the Year award.
