Former Wallabies international Christian Lealiifano has made his first appearance for ACT Brumbies since being diagnosed with leukaemia last year.
The flyhalf was diagnosed with the cancer in August, shortly after the end of last year’s Brumbies season, and was in remission in February.
On Thursday night in Singapore, the 19-cap Wallaby took the field for the Brumbies in a match in Singapore. He started on the bench and entered the match early in the second half.
