Former Wallaby Christian Leali’ifano will return to Super Rugby this weekend after undergoing treatment for leukemia.

The Brumbies star was originally diagnosed with the disease in August 2016 and has since undergone radiation treatment and a bone marrow transplant.

ACT coach Stephen Larkham (pictured) says after his comeback was originally postponed by injury, it will be a moment to savour, not just for Leali’ifano and the Brumbies but for rugby fans around the world.
