BIO

A former NRL player with the Wests Tigers, Chance Peni took like a duck to water in his first Super Rugby season with the Western Force.

Born in Invercargill in New Zealand, Peni and his family moved to Perth whilst he was a young boy. He played both Rugby League and Rugby Union growing up before moving to Newcastle and signing with the NRL’s Newcastle Knights.

After two years with the Knights junior teams Peni signed a two-year contract with the Wests Tigers, he wouldn’t make a First Grade appearance for the side but would make his international debut with the Cook Islands.

In late 2016 Peni decided to return home to Perth and take up a contract with the Western Force under new Head Coach Dave Wessels. A skillful winger with silky skills and electric pace, Peni dominated the early rounds of Super Rugby in 2017, scoring a highlight reel of tries and igniting what had in previous seasons been a below par Force attack.

A shoulder injury cut the 24-year old’s first season short but he made enough of an impression to be swooped up by the Brumbies on a fulltime contract for 2018.
