Player Bio

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.

Continued to develop as a young loosehead prop, adding a further nine Queensland caps to his name, despite missing four rounds due to a calf injury. Named in the Wallabies extended training squad ahead of The Rugby Championship. Featured for University of Queensland at the back end of the Queensland Premier Rugby season, including a starting role in their grand final win over GPS. Played a prominent role in Bond University Queensland Country’s run to the National Rugby Championship title, but missed the final due to an ankle injury suffered while representing the Barbarians against the Classic Wallabies.
Featured in all 15 of the Reds’ Super Rugby matches. Represented Queensland Country in the NRC. Selected to represent the Wallaby XV against the French Barbarians in Bordeaux.
Made his Super Rugby debut from the bench in Round 1 and went on to play eight games as a reserve loosehead prop. Fa’agase joined Queensland Country for the second edition of the National Rugby Championship, featuring in all eight games and scoring three tries.
Twice named in the Reds match-day 23 and was unlucky not to make his debut. Starting loosehead prop for majority of Brisbane City’s National Rugby Championship title-winning campaign.

*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.
