Born in Auckland, Sef Fa’agase moved to Logan, south of Brisbane, in 1994 with his family. He first discovered his love of Rugby with the Beaudesert Warriors Junior Rugby club, travelling to the regional town each Saturday to play.
It wasn’t until 2011 that he started on the path to the St.George Queensland Reds, following an invitation from former Reds coach Phil Mooney to join Wests for pre-season training in their Premier grade program.
He signed with the Reds following promising showings in the 2014 National Rugby Championship and the 2015 Super Rugby season and has since established himself as a regular in the match-day 23.
Fa’agase tragically lost his mother to cancer in late 2012, but credits her battle with the disease as his inspiration for continuing to work hard and chase his dreams of being a professional Rugby player.
*Please note, the scoring in the National Rugby Championship changed from seasons 1 and 2 to season 3. In 2014 and 2015 tries were worth 5 points, conversions 3 points, penalties/drop goals 2 points. In 2016, tries were worth 6 points, conversions/penalty goals/drop goals 2 points.
