Henry Taefu joins the Reds' Senior Squad following an impressive season for Brisbane City in the 2015 National Rugby Championship. Born in Apia, Samoa, Taefu moved to Brisbane with his family at the age of 12. By the time he was 16, the talented centre had secured a scholarship to attend his final two years of high school at Anglican Church Grammar School, where his rugby career began. He spent two years playing league after high school, as a member of the Parramatta Eels U18 and U20 squads, before returning to his preferred code in 2012 to join Queensland Premier Rugby side Sunnybank. Taefu's journey to this point has not been a straightforward one. In 2013, while playing for the Australian U20s side at the Junior World Championship in France, he suffered a shoulder injury which required surgery.
