Filipo Daugunu used the 2017 National Rugby Championship season as his own personal highlights reel and St.George Queensland Reds fans will be hoping he can do the same in Super Rugby in 2018.
Daugunu moved to Australia ahead of the 2017 Queensland Premier Rugby season to chase his dream of earning a professional Rugby contract.
His standout performances as one of Wests’ outside backs, helping them to their first finals appearance since 2007, earned him a call up to Bond University Queensland Country - where he thrived as the competition’s leading try scorer, notching 13 tries in eight appearances, including a hat-trick in their grand final win over the Canberra Vikings.
His irresistible form in the NRC was rewarded with a Reds contract for the 2018 Super Rugby season.
