Still just 20 years old, Izaia Perese has already established himself as one of the most exciting young prospects in Australian Rugby.
A product of Queensland Rugby’s pathway, Perese first represented Queensland at U16s level in 2013 and made his Super Rugby debut in 2017.
With dynamic speed and power at his disposal, Perese announced his arrival as a player to watch in the 2016 National Rugby Championship season, where he was a dominant force for Bond University Queensland Country. His performances there earned him a call up for the Wallabies spring tour, despite the fact he was yet to play Super Rugby.
He built on those performances in 2017, establishing himself in the St.George Queensland Reds squad, claiming an NRC title with Bond University Queensland Country and taking part in a number of Wallabies tours throughout the year.
