After crowning champion with Melbourne Storm in the NRL, Suliasi Vunivalu will follow the same path as his former partner Marika Koroibete and will join the Australian squad for the two games against Los Pumas.
As confirmed by The Sydney Morning Herald, Rugby Australia will add the scorer for the Wallabies team starting this week and will start training immediately.
Vunivalu has already joined his new teammates to face the last two tests of the year for the Three Nations against Argentina in Newcastle and Sydney.
Although the call for Vunivalu surprised many, according to local media it is very unlikely that he will appear in the last two tests of the Wallabies of the year. Rennie hopes his new Fiji midfielder will have the same impact as Koroibete.
It is the same presentation method that Michael Cheika used in 2016 when he brought to Koroibete to the end-of-season Aussie tour of Europe, unable to play but with the aim of furthering the development of the player who had to wait until the Rugby Championship to add his first minutes in the selected team in 2017.
During his five-year career with the Storm, Vunivalu scored a staggering 86 conquests. However, now you will have a hard competition with Tom Wright who took advantage of his opportunity in what was his debut against the All Blacks.
