Player Bio

Samu Kerevi is entering just his fourth year as a professional Rugby player and has already notched some impressive milestones.

His most recent being a Wallabies debut against England, but it is just one of the achievements in his burgeoning career.

In his first year with the Reds he made his Super Rugby debut and helped guide Brisbane City to the inaugural National Rugby Championship title. In his second year, he was the Reds’ leading attacking threat, trained with the Wallabies in the lead up to The Rugby Championship and helped Brisbane City to an undefeated championship season in the NRC.

Most recently, his third season saw him earn his Wallabies debut against England at Suncorp Stadium in June 2016.

If the previous three years are anything to go by, 2017 promises to be another exciting year of upward momentum for the enthusiastic young centre.

Born in Fiji, Samu and his family moved to Australia when he was just seven years old. Samu played the majority of his junior club Rugby at Sunnybank before making the move to GPS following school.

Continued to dominant as one of the Reds’ key attacking players, featuring in 13 games and scoring five tries. Carried this form into Test Rugby, making his Wallabies debut against England at Suncorp Stadium in June. Cemented his spot as the Wallabies starting outside centre before an ankle injury suffered against the All Blacks ruled him out for the rest of the season.
This was a breakout year for the young centre, who featured in all but two of the Reds’ Super Rugby games, starting eight games at inside centre and six at outside. Samu was one of the team’s most potent attacking weapons and led the Reds in run metres (110), tackle busts (42), linebreaks (42) and tries (6). Following Super Rugby he was selected to train with the Wallabies in their preliminary camp ahead of The Rugby Championship. Samu featured in all Brisbane City’s matches in their undefeated National Rugby Championship campaign.
Missed the first half of the season due to an ankle injury. Made his Super Rugby debut for Queensland Reds against the Highlanders and played four games in total, including two starts. Named in Queensland Rugby’s Brisbane City National Rugby Championship squad and was one the standouts of the competition, despite missing three games due to injury, including City’s victorious Grand Final.
Invited to the Australian Under 20s training squad. Demonstrated strong form in Queensland Premier Rugby as one of GPS’ main attacking threats, scoring 11 tries.
Played for Fiji Under 20s alongside his brother Joshua at the 2012 Junior World Championships in South Africa. Joshua played wing outside of Samu at outside centre. Made his Queensland Premier Rugby debut while still a colt at just 19 years old.
Played Queensland Schoolboys Rugby while at Brisbane State High School in 2011. Played in the school’s First XV with Reds teammates Curtis Browning and Chris Feauai-Sautia.
