BIO

One of Australian Rugby’s biggest stars, 2018 was an up and down year for the ‘K-Train’, Tevita Kuridrani.

A slow start would rightly be put down to the amount of rugby Kuridrani has played in recent seasons. Early season struggles were long forgotten however as Kuridrani had a blazing finish to 2018, his performances against the Hurricanes and Waratahs were incredible.

Now a seasoned veteran in Wallaby gold, Kuridrani joined the Brumbies in 2012 having represented both the Fijian and Australian U20’s as well as the Australian Sevens program on the World Circuit.

The 27-year old immediately made an impression on new Head Coach Jake White, establishing himself as one of the Brumbies best backs despite his young age. Kuridrani debuted against the Reds in Brisbane during his first season and never looked back, proving himself against the defending Super Rugby champions.

2013 was a breakout year for Kuridrani, the outside centre playing a starring role in the Brumbies run to the Super Rugby Grand Final and making his senior Test debut against the All Blacks in Sydney. Kuridrani has gone on to represent his country 58 times including playing in every game of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, helping Australia qualify for the Final.

When fit, healthy and firing, Kuridrani is arguably the best outside centre in the world. Impossible to tackle one-on-one, a willing off-loader and a top shelf defender at his best, Kuridrani can be a game changer for the Brumbies and put simply, when he is good the Brumbies follow suit.

On the international side of things, an injury in the final game of the season limited Kuridrani’s time in Gold, but you can bet that Tevita will be back in 2019, focused on winning a Super Rugby Title and perhaps a World Cup with the Wallabies.
