BIO

Tevita Kuridrani is Australia’s premier outside-centre and one of the Brumbies genuine strike weapons in both attack and defence.

Since arriving from the Reds as a wide-eyed teenager in 2012, Kuridrani has evolved to become one of the Super Rugby competition’s most respected defenders. Kuridrani’s ability to read a play and move out of the line to shut it down is un-coachable and the envy of any defence coach worth his bacon.

But defence rarely puts a player’s name in lights. Luckily for Kuridrani he’s no one-trick pony and has plenty of attacking tricks up his sleeve to compliment his game. Almost impossible to stop in open space or close to the line, Kuridrani has bagged 12 Super Rugby tries, however that number could have more than likely tripled, had he not laid off dozens of offloads to his wingers and fullbacks who have gone on to score.

In 2013 he announced himself as a player for the rest of the world to keep their eye on scoring the only try for the Brumbies during their win over the British and Irish Lions and his 20+ appearances for the Wallabies have all garnered praise from rugby experts across the globe.

At almost 2m tall and pushing the 100kg mark, Kuridrani could have almost certainly cut it as an blind-side flanker. Thanks to his size, fend and pace, taking Kuridrani down in full flight can only be compared to tackling a Harley Davidson on the Hume Highway.
