Jesse Parahi re-joined the Australian Sevens set-up in April 2016 after a short stint in the NRL with the Wests Tigers. The powerful ball-carrier was a key cog in the team that helped Australia qualify for the 2016 Rio Olympics.One of Jesse’s most memorable moments in an Australian Sevens jersey was in October 2013 when he crossed over in sudden-death extra-time against South Africa in the Gold Coast Cup Semi-Finals to win the game. After returning to the Aussie Sevens squad for the inaugural 2016 Sydney Sevens tournament, Parahi continued to impress coaching staff, earning him selection at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
