A student of famed Rugby nursery St Edmunds College, Anthony represented the school’s first XV aged just 15 and was selected as vice-captain of the Australian Schools team in 2004.

Along with brother Saia, Anthony Fainga’a was a key member of Australia’s U19 World Championship winning side in 2006 sealing Australia’s victory over New Zealand in the final with a late drop goal and was later nominated for the IRB U19 Player of the Year.

The 29-year old made his Super Rugby debut with the Brumbies in 2007 against the Bulls in front of friends and family at GIO Stadium going on to play four games for the Brumbies over two seasons before relocating to the Queensland Reds where he made 89 appearances for the side.

Fainga’a made his test debut for Australia against the All Blacks in Melbourne in 2010. He played in 16 matches of the Reds 2011 Super Rugby title-winning season including the semi-final win over the Blues and final victory over the Crusaders.
