Super Rebels lure Fiji defence coach to Melbourne


Fresh off last weekend's historic win over England at Twickenham, Fiji's assistant coach Brad Harris has signed to join the Melbourne Rebels.

Harris will link with the Super Rugby Pacific side as defence guru next season, working under head coach Kevin Foote.

Harris has penned a multi-year deal and will remain with Melbourne Rebels until at least the end of the 2025 season.

Starting his coaching career in Canberra, Harris has spent time with the Georgian national side and the last five years in various roles with Fiji.

He was part of the coaching set-up for the men's Sevens team who won gold at the 2021 Tokyo Olympics before moving to the Fijian Drua.

Harris is currently part of Fiji's World Cup campaign in France, where they will face the Wallabies in a pool game.

Fiji claimed their first-ever win over England in a World Cup warm-up clash last weekend.

The Australians will also face Georgia in their opening clash in Paris.
