The ANZCCJ is previliged to present Toutai Kefu: Unplugged. Toutai will talk about his background, what the 'average' life of a
professional rugby player at home and on the road is like. Toutai will also mention some of the lighter moments of Rugby, including some humorous experiences and recount some of the characters he has met playing and also played with. Toutai will finish with an open Q&A with the audience.

Toutai Kefu is a rugby player who won 60 caps playing at number eight for the Australian rugby union side (the Wallabies).

Big, quick and powerfully built, he was a stand out school boy
performer before making his international test debut at the age of 23 as a replacement during the 1997 Tri Nations Series match against South Africa. He took over the position of number 8 from fellow Tongan

Willie Ofahengaue in 1998 when he gained his first starting appearance with Australia in their record 76-0 win over England. This score remains the biggest losing margin that England has suffered.

He played a vital role in the Australian side that lifted the 1999
Rugby World Cup, scoring againstRomania in the opening game. One of his finest moments came in John Eales' final game for the Wallabies when he scored the try which beat the All Blacks, gave the retiring Skipper a winning record against the New Zealanders and the perfect send off. He currently is playing for Kubota Spears in the Top League in Japan.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to hear live from Toutai Kefu.
