Jordan Uelese has had a fantastic 2017, playing for Melbourne Rebels and Australia u20s before topping it off with a debut for the Wallabies in Perth last weekend.
The springboks weren’t slow to mind games, dubbing Jordan “fresh meat” as he entered his first scrum. Jordan took it all in his stride with a great 20 minutes out there at the NIB stadium showing promise for the next generation of young Wallabies.
Reporters spoke to Jordan after the game here are some snippets of what Jordan had to say;
“It’s awesome that Cheik brought me in at such an early stage to feed off the senior guys, like Moorey, who have been at the level for 100-plus caps because they got into my head and made it a bit easier.”
“My phone’s been going nuts, notifications left, right and centre. Pre-game I was still copping messages so I had to turn it off so I wasn’t eaten up by that.”
“My No.1 goal in life was to put on that gold jersey and to fulfil that … I’ve got to go find new goals now”
Everyone at MURFC is extremely proud of Jordan’s dedication, desire and determination to get to this point in his career. We wish Jordan the best of luck and hopefully he’ll have many more games in the green and gold.
