One of Australia’s most consistent forwards of the past decade, Wycliff Palu continues to be a dominant force at the back of the scrum. ‘Cliffy’ has been a mainstay for the NSW Waratahs and Wallabies in the number eight jersey and is still one of the most feared hitters and elusive ball-running backrowers in the game. Quiet and unassuming off the field, Palu is the leader of the Wallabies pack with his physicality and no-holds-barred approach to the breakdown. The Sydney-born giant of Tongan heritage has surpassed the 50-cap milestone in Test Rugby and provides valuable experience to a youthful and emerging stable of Wallabies backrowers. A hamstring injury ended his 2015 Rugby World Cup prematurely and while retirement looked to be on the cards, he has signed for one final year in Super Rugby.
