EbeneMagazine – AU – Rugby: Former NRL star Soliasi Vnivalo reportedly intends to join the Wallabies at camp this week – NZ Herald


In a surprise move, the NRL star who recently left Soliasi Funivalo has been assigned to join the Wallabies band when they meet again in Hunter Valley, NSW today

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Vunivalu – who has left Melbourne Storm to join the Queensland Reds in 2021 – will join Dave Rennie’s team and begin training, pending his Covid-19 test results

Vunivalu’s entry into international rugby next year would have been instead upon completion of his first season with the Reds, if his performance at a record high would have followed a similar path to former teammate and compatriot Marica Coropet, who changed rugby codes after a season 2016 NRL and was also included in the Wallabies squad months later

While it brings encouraging news for Wallabies fans with the instant injection of a talented winger, it is unlikely that Vunivalu will play in any of the two remaining Tests of 2020

Rennie stocks are showing up broadly well with Koroibete, Tom Wright and Filipo Daugunu showing promising glimpses in the Wallabies four tests so far under the New Zealand coach

Vunivalu also hasn’t played the 15-player game in six years, which supports the premise that it won’t be playing in Australia soon

The 24-year-old played rugby in high school for St.Continuous College in Auckland and appeared on the side of the Academy of the Blues, before being explored by Team Storm and joining the youth team

In five seasons in the National Football League, Fiji played 111 matches, scored 86 attempts, and helped raise the two championships
