Flying Fijians prop Peni Ravai has signed a one-year contract with the Queensland Reds for the Shop N Save Super Rugby Pacific.
The 32-year-old, who debuted for Fiji in 2013, has been playing for Clermont in the French Top 14 competition before making the move to Queensland.
Ravai says he is excited to have signed with the Reds and there is plenty of competition for spots in the front-row.
He says he is looking forward to bringing his experience to the team in his first season of Super Rugby.
Born in Fiji, Ravai 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 represented Fiji in the 2015 and 2019 Rugby World Cup tournaments, and is the first Fijian international prop to also represent the country in Sevens.
The 2023 Super Rugby Pacific will kick-start on the 24th of next month.
The Reds first match is against the Hurricanes on the 25th of next month.
