Julian Salvi (born 9 October 1985), is an Australian rugby union player who plays for Exeter Chiefs.

The Canberra junior and former Australian Schools and Under 21s captain has enhanced his standing as a noted ball winner and breakdown specialist during his time in the Northern Hemisphere.

Having made more than 50 appearances for the Brumbies in two spells either side of a season with Bath in 2009–10 (where he picked up the West Country Club’s Best Forward and Supporters’ Player of the Year award), he decided to return to the England Premiership, this time with the Leicester Tigers as an injury replacement for flanker Craig Newby.[1]

The highly rated Australian openside collected his first Premiership title with Tigers in 2013 and was also voted Player of the Year by the Tigers’ supporters.

Shortlisted for Aviva Premiership Player of the Year for a second successive year, Salvi has enjoyed an impressive 2 seasons with more than 50 appearances for the club and some stand-out performances in the biggest games.[2]

Upon completion of the 2014-2015 season Salvi will move to Exeter Chiefs for the 2015-2016 season.[3]
