After more than a decade in professional Rugby, Saia Fainga’a has established himself as one of the more recognisable rakes in the game, known for his aggressive low tackles and strong presence at the breakdown.

Saia featured in just 10 games for the Reds in a 2015 season frustrated by a niggling rib injury, suffered against the Bulls in Pretoria, but returned to action via Queensland Country for the National Rugby Championship, featuring in four of their games as he pushed hard to win a spot in the Wallabies’ Rugby World Cup squad.
