Allan Fa’alava’au will be a key play maker for the Australian men’s rugby sevens section when the sport makes its Olympic debut at Rio 2016.
Born in Auckland, the utility moved to Australia as a 14-year-old. He was a member of the Australian Schoolboys side in 2011 alongside Cameron Clark, Sean McMahon and Will Miller.
He made his debut for the Australian Sevens side after being called up as injury cover for the Las Vegas Sevens tournament in 2012. The same year he was named in the Australian U20s team for the Junior World Championships in South Africa.
Fa’alava’au was granted Australian citizenship in 2014 and signed a new contract with the Aussie sevens in January 2015. Off the field, he is a quiet achiever and loves to play the guitar for hours on end.
