Strike weapon TEVITA KURIDRANI has quickly established himself as an elite centre in World Rugby, starting in 11 out of the 12 Test matches he played for the Qantas Wallabies in 2014. Kuridrani has made significant leaps since making his Test debut against New Zealand in 2013, missing only two matches for the Wallabies. Kuridirani continues to be the go-to centre for the Brumbies, forming a formidable attacking trio alongside Christian Leali’ifano and Matt Toomua. Despite an injury-hampered 2015 Super Rugby season, he was still a major contributor to the Brumbies run to the Semi Finals. In March, Kuridrani signed a two-year contract extension with the Australian Rugby Union that will take him through to the end of the 2017 season. The Fijian-born flyer is the cousin of former Wallabies winger Lote Tuqiri was raised in the same Fijian village current All Blacks and Crusaders winger Nenami Nadolo.
