Premier Rugby: Genia’s emotional journey back to where it began at Jeeps

“When I look back, my first year out of school was playing club footy in Colts and to this day it’s still probably the most enjoyable Rugby I’ve played, and you have fun doing it in this environment.”

Those words are from the mouth of Wallabies scrum half Will Genia as he readies himself to come off the bench for GPS in their game against Souths in Queensland Premier Rugby on Saturday.

After gaining dispensation to play from his current Japanese club the Kintetsu Liners, Genia is relishing the chance to be back around the Queensland Premier Rugby scene.

“I feel really privileged to have the opportunity to play on Saturday and I can’t wait,” he said.

“It’s kind of a full circle, I’m back here towards the back end of my footy career now and I’m really excited to strap them on with my little brother (Nigel) as well.”
