Ben Volavola

13th Jan 1991 1.91m/89kg Fly Half

In 2013, Volavola earned his first cap for the HSBC Waratahs in round one against the Queensland Reds, capping off an eye-opening debut with a superb individual try. One of four up and coming Shute Shield youngsters invited to join the squad for the first two weeks of pre-season training, the 21-year-old fly half/fullback earned a full-time place in the squad thanks to a potent mix of promise and potential.

A dangerous player comfortable in the frontline or backline of attack, the Sydney-born youngster ignited his passion for rugby as a seven-year-old living in the Fijian town of Suva, where he spent his early childhood before returning to Sydney’s St George region.

Volavola started all four of Fiji's games at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

In 2016, Volavola will join the Crusaders.

Sydney-born Volavola, who also played provincial rugby for Canterbury, had signed a two-year contract with the Crusaders but was released late last year.

Volavola signed a one-year contract with the Melbourne Rebels following an unsuccessful stint in New Zealand with the Crusaders.

Since his Super Rugby debut in 2013, he has scored 21 points in 15 appearances.

Volavola had an outstanding season with the Rebels and North Harbour making 11 appearances for the Rebels and helping the North Harbour side to the Mitre 10 Cup Premiership semi finals.

Following the Mitre 10 Cup season Volavola signed for French Top 14 side Bordeaux.

Volavola made 10 appearances for Bordeaux during the 2017/18 Top14 season before signing for Racing 92 ahead of the 2018/19 season.

As of the 2018/2019 Champions Cup, Volavola has had 4 European Cups appearances scoring 13 points.
