Biography

Equally as comfortable in the 10 or 12 jerseys, with silky-smooth skills and a self-confessed affection for coffee, Toomua makes the play making role look easy as he glides across the pitch looking for options.

A Wallaby tourist in 2010, Toomua has often found himself on the wrong end of serious injuries with a broken jaw just minutes into his national debut ruling him out of the rest of the spring tour.

He has to date racked up 25 Test caps for Australia and has been named in the 31 man squad for the 2015 Rugby World Cup squad.

On November 15, 2015, Leicester Tigers announced to have signed Toomua on a three-year deal, beginning at the end of the 2016 season.

Toomua started the 2017/18 season well starring in 8 of Leicester Tigers' 9 matches. 

In November 2017 he signed a contract extension to stay with Leicester Tigers up to 2020. 

In August 2018 Leicester Tigers confirmed that Toomua will be granted an early release of his contract at the end of the 2018/19 season to return home to Australia and take up a two and half year deal with the Melbourne Rebels and Rugby Australia.
