Jordan Uelese


Melbourne hooker Jordan Uelese has become the third home grown player to sign his first professional Super Rugby contract with the Melbourne Rebels.

The 19-year-old, who plays for Melbourne University, follows in the footsteps of Sione Tuipulotu and Rob Leota to rise through Victorian Rugby’s elite pathway to sign a contract with the Melbourne Rebels.

After helping the Melbourne Rebels U20’s to the inaugural Super Under 20’s Championship grand final, Uelese started all five of Australia’s games at the World Rugby U20’s Championship in Manchester.
