Jacob Rauluni is currently the most prominent in a family of international halfbacks. His father, Taito, played halfback for Fiji, as does his brother Moses. And his first cousin Waisale Serevi began his rugby career at halfback.

Jake grew up in Brisbane, and played for Australian Schoolboys and Colts before choosing Fiji. At school he used to play flanker, but the Aussie Schoolboys team needed a halfback for the tour of the UK in 1991, and Jake says he was handed the No.9 jersey because of his family's tradition.

He has kept a regular spot in the Fiji team for the past decade, and also gained valuable experience with the Queensland Reds in Super 12, playing in the semi-finals in 2000 and 2002.

He played his first Telecom Fiji Cup game in July 2000, turning out alongside Marika Vunibaka to help Suva defeat Tailevu.

Rauluni joined Rotherham in northern England in August 2002,moved to Bristol for a spell, then joined Leeds Tykes in 2006.
