Biography

Fereti Sa'aga is a hulking prop, who possesses surprising agility and pace for a front rower who weighs 126kgs.

Sa'aga is a Victorian homegrown product, hailing from the Northern Panthers Rugby Union Club.

Sa’aga signed with the Melbourne Rebels in 2017 after showing consistent performances for the Melbourne Rising in the 2016 NRC competition. The then young prop made his Super Rugby debut against the Hurricanes in Wellington, and Sa'aga did not miss a beat from there, making 13 appearances in his first professional season.

Following his impressive first-year form, Sa’aga was awarded the Rebels 2017 Rookie of the Year.

Sa'aga continued his Super Rugby form into 2018, appearing in 12 throughout the season. At the end of 2018, Sa'aga signed contract extension which will see the Victorian product and childhood Rebels fan remain in Melbourne until 2022. 

2019 was a frustrating year for Sa'aga, with the prop suffering a severe leg injury, which ruled him out for the whole Super Rugby season.
