Chris Feauai-Sautia will be looking to return to his damaging best in 2018, after missing all of the 2017 Super Rugby season due to injury.
Anyone needing a reminder of Feauai-Sautia’s potential need look no further than his performances for Bond University Queensland Country in their 2017 National Rugby Championship-winning campaign. The 24-year-old was a powerful force at outside centre as Country went from last in 2016 to champions in 2017.
The softly-spoken former Brisbane State High School student is the equal most-capped Australian Schoolboy in history, tied on 11 caps with Newington College’s Hugh Roach, topping the previous marks of nine held by Wallabies stars Quade Cooper and Kurtley Beale.
Such was the buzz surrounding Feauai-Sautia as a teenager, he was signed up to the Reds on a full-time contract while he was still completing his schooling, at just 17 years of age.
