Former Nakelo rugby player Ilikena Vudogo is now training with his new NRL club Brisbane Broncos after signing a two-year deal.

The 20-year-old speedster left the country last Friday and has been assigned to Broncos affiliate club Souths-Logan.

NRL.com reports he is likely to start playing in the BRL competition with a view to progressing to the Intrust Super Cup.

Vudogo is managed by George Christodoulou, who has had great success helping talented Fijians into the NRL, including Viliame Kikau, Suliasi Vunivalu, and Semi Radradra.

Meanwhile, he starred for Fiji at last year’s World Rugby under 20s Trophy in Romania where he was named the player of the tournament.

Christodoulou identified Vudogo at Romania where he helped Fiji win the tournament.

He was drafted into the Fiji Airways men’s 7s squad and was earmarked to make his debut in this year’s tournament before the Broncos pounced.
