Western Force announce major signing of Tevita Kuridrani

  Western Force announce major signing of Tevita Kuridrani Tevita Kuridrani has left the Brumbies to head to Perth to join the Western Force for the 2021 season. Fresh off winning the Super Rugby AU title on Saturday, the veteran outside centre will link up with the Perth-based franchise for the next domestic rugby season. Kuridrani has been a Wallabies regular since his debut in 2013 but was a surprise omission from Dave Rennie’s 44-man squad for the 2020 Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship on the back of a season in which he was below his best. Still, at 29 years old he still has plenty of rugby left in him, and produced his best game of Super Rugby AU in the final.

However according to the NRL .com Ladder Predictor, the race for top four spots is still alive.

This weekend will likely see the return of Manly fullback Tom Trbojevic from a hamstring injury, as well as Knights superstar Kalyn Ponga after he was rested last weekend.

The Roar’s Super Rugby AU team of the season

  The Roar’s Super Rugby AU team of the season After suggesting last week’s qualifying final was one of the best Australian derby games in years, it’s only fair to note that Saturday night’s final topped it in exactly the way you would hope. The Brumbies came into the decider in what could only be described as patchy form, despite winning two of the last three games after their bye. The Reds’ form had been superb, winning their last four and controlling the qualifying final over the Rebels like a team on the charge.
