Biography

Equally as comfortable in the 10 or 12 jerseys, Matt To'omua links beautifully with Henry Speight, Joe Tomane and Christian Lealiifano and the four have been the lynchpin of much of the Brumbies' success over the last four years. Through his first six seasons of Super Rugby, injury and selection prevented To'omua from making more than nine appearances in any given season. But in 2013, under then head coach, Jake White, To'omua was finally afforded enough playing time to prove he has what it takes. To'omua has been almost faultless on the field since his breakthrough season, causing havoc in Pretoria with Tevita Kuridrani to send the Brumbies to their first Super Rugby Final in a decade. He backed that up in 2014 with another two brilliant efforts – first against the Force and then the Chiefs to steer his side within a win of a second Final. To'omua’s hat-trick of tries against the Force was the club’s first since Mark Gerrard claimed three in the 2004 Final, cementing his name in the record books as one of just eight Brumbies to have cross three times in one match. One the back of his 2013 season To'omua found himself debuting for the Wallabies against the All Blacks and has since gone on to claim Test caps against every major rugby-playing nation on the planet.
