Tough year comes to a close

Saia_Anthony

After a tough season, we just want to thank our Reds family for all their support and sticking by us through thick and thin this season. We’ll get back in the gym and on the track for a big offseason, and come back bigger and better for season 2014-15. In the meantime, we’ll be working off the field helping our favourite Charity, supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation with our Annual Pink Gala Dinner this October.

Saia and Anthony Fainga’a are just the third set of twins to play for Australia.

About

Saia and Anthony Fainga’a of Tongan and Aboriginal descent were born on 2nd February 1987 in Queanbeyan, New South Wales, where they started playing rugby league as five year olds with the Queanbeyan Kangaroos. From a young age it was evident that the twins were something special. Not only were they at least a head taller than any other kid on the field but they were determined and loved playing together.

The twins attended St. Edmund’s College in Canberra where they first represented the school’s 1st XV rugby team at age 15. They were selected as captain and vice-captain of the Australian Schools team in 2004.

The Fainga’a Twins were again recognised for their leadership skills once again being rewarded captain and vice captain of the World Championship-winning Australian Under 19’s in 2006. They also represented Australia in the Under 21’s in 2006.

Both Faingaa Twins began their professional careers signing their first Super Rugby contracts with the ACT Brumbies in 2006. In 2009, both Saia and Anthony swapped out the wintery weather down south for the sunshine the Queensland Reds had to offer. Their move to Queensland not only developed their careers on the field with Wallabies selections, but also off the field. The Faingaa Twins have been inspiring mentors for Mission Australia, they are brand Ambassadors for Lexus of Brisbane and they go out of their way to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation with annual charity events.

The Faingaa Twins remarkable performance in the Reds 2011 Super Rugby title-winning season, gave them both the opportunity to play in the Tri Nations and made history when they were named in the starting line-up together against the All Blacks in Christchurch. They became the first set of twins since Mark and Glen Ella to start for the Wallabies in a Test and helped the Wallabies secure their first Tri Nations title in a decade. Their efforts were rewarded with a place in the Australian 30-man squad for the 2011 World Cup.

The Twins have re-signed to the Queensland Reds for 2015 and 2016.
