Biography

Alex Mafi will enter his fourth Super Rugby season at the St.George Queensland Reds in 2020.

He was signed by the Reds as an 18-year-old after showing promise as a schoolboys player at St. Joseph’s Nudgee College.

Although clearly a talented young player, it wasn’t until 2017, after recovering from a horror run of injuries, that Mafi began to demonstrate his considerable talents on a consistent basis.

He earned his Super Rugby debut in 2017 and was an integral member of Bond University Queensland Country’ championship-winning run in the National Rugby Championship.
