Reds hooker Saia Fainga’a has spent more than a decade in professional Rugby, a stalwart of the code in Queensland. Known for his aggressive, low tackles and fervour at the breakdown, Saia has experienced somewhat of a resurgence in recent times. Saia was the first of three Fainga'as to play Super Rugby, debuting for the Brumbies. He was followed by twin Anthony, with both playing at the Reds, while younger brother Colby players at the Rebels.
