Fijian prop Ravai joins Queensland Reds

Robust Fijian prop Peni Ravai has joined the Queensland Reds for the 2023 Super Rugby Pacific season.

The 32-year-old Tailevu native debuted for the Fijian Sevens team in 2013, before making his international debut in the XV-man game the same year against Romania.

Ravai played in the National Rugby Championship (NRC) for the Greater Sydney Rams in 2014, before moving to Southland to play in New Zealand’s National Provincial Championship in 2016.

The front rower then took his talents to France, playing for Division Two side Aurillac before making the jump to the Top 14 with Bordeaux and Clermont between 2017 and 2021.

Ravai, who has signed a 1-year-deal, is earmarked to replace an injured Taniela Tupou who will be out of action for most part of this year after tearing his achilles tendon on last year’s European tour.

The Reds play the Western Force in Perth on Saturday in one of their two warm-up clashes before facing the Hurricanes in Super Rugby opener in Townsville on 25 February.
