Biography

Prop forward Vunipola Fifita was the last of the 2019 Plus500 Brumbies to put pen to paper and sign on for the Super Rugby season, the exciting young front-rower earning his opportunity following an exemplary 2018 National Rugby Championship (NRC) with the Canberra Vikings.

With excellent handling skills, and Fifita the physique to cause issues to opposition defences both in the scrum and in the loose. Despite being Auckland-born, Fifita has been capped for both Australian Schools and the Junior Wallabies and put those skills to good use throughout the NRC season.

Moving to Canberra from Sydney, where he was a product of Newington College, Fifita has taken the challenges thrown to him in his stride and is set for a solid career should his progression continue at the current pace. Firstly though, he’ll be keen to settle into the professional environment and continue to learn the trade.
