Jonah Placid

14th May 1995 1.81m/97kg Fullback

An exciting fullback who rose through the ranks in Queensland having first came to prominence playing for Easts Tigers and he helped them win the 2013 Queensland Premier Rugby Title.

A three-time U20 World Cup representative with the Junior Wallabies, Placid was an outstanding prospect who earnt his first Super Rugby cap for the Reds at just 18, before heading to the Rebels, where he played 18 matches over three seasons.

Placid, was the youngest member of the Rebels’ 2015 squad, represented Australia at three consecutive IRB Junior World Championships in France (2013), New Zealand (2014) and Italy (2015).

In July 2017, Toulon announced that Placid would be joining the club for the 2017/18 season.

The move to Toulon proved to be a difficult one as he struggled with injuries and the ability to cement a starting role as he made just 10 appearances before returning to Australia with the Western Force in 2020.
