Biography

A talented utility back, Semisi Tupou represented the Australian U20s at the 2017 U20 World Championship after some stellar performances for the Rebels U20s side.

He made appearances in all of the Australian side's matches and in July 2017, Tupou was named in the Rebels' match day starting 23 in their final fixture of the 2017 Super Rugby season against the Jaguares.

Semisi scored his first try for the Melbourne Rebels in Round 13 of the 2018 against the Brumbies, in first ever Super Rugby start. Tupou enjoyed a promising second season, playing five games.

2019 started off brightly for the speedy winger, with Tupou selected in the Round 1 side to verse the Brumbies at GIO Stadium. The return of utility back Reece Hodge from injury and the form of Wallaby wingers Jack Maddocks and Marika Koroibete squeezed the young gun out of the side, however Tupou made a return in Round 8 against the Sunwolves and also earned a starting wing position against the Stormers in Round 9. 

Tupou was then selected for the Junior Wallabies in the 2019 Oceania U20 Championship and was an integral part of the side's run to a series sweep, and stunning 24-0 victory over the Baby All Blacks in the final. Tupou again proved his worth as a starting winger in Australia's U20 World Championship's side, playing every match of the tournament, including the side's one point loss to France in the final.
