A front row mainstay for both the NSW Waratahs and Qantas Wallabies since making his Test debut in 2008, SEKOPE KEPU became one of the more recent Wallabies to achieve 50 Test caps when he started against France on the 2014 Spring Tour. The man they call ‘Keps’ became just the sixth prop in Australian Rugby history to reach the milestone, joining an elite group which includes Ben Alexander and Benn Robinson (72 games), Al Baxter (69 games), James Slipper (63 games) and Ewen McKenzie (51 games). As one of the Australian Rugby’s most valued and experienced forwards, Kepu has played in every Test in the past two years and started in the past 17 matches for the Wallabies. Kepu continued to be one of the key figures in the Waratahs scrum during the 2015 Super Rugby season, while also being one of the team’s leading attacking weapons who continued to build on his reputation as a hard ball-carrying, high work-rate prop.
