Toni Pulu will be eligible to represent the Wallabies.

Pulu who was once labelled the fastest man in New Zealand rugby and played 31 Super Rugby games for the Chiefs in the past three seasons, has signed a two‑year deal with the Brumbies.

The 29‑year‑old who has played sevens for Niue, joins Crusaders loose forward Pete Samu in leaving New Zealand to play for the two‑time champions in Canberra.

Pulu holds an Australian passport.

A Rugby Australia spokesman told Fox Sports that World Rugby had cleared him to play for Australia if picked by coach Michael Cheika.

Pulu has not been named in the Wallabies training squad to prepare for the Bledisloe Cup test against the All Blacks in Sydney on August 18, unlike Samu who made his debut for the Aussies during the series against Ireland in June.

Former Chiefs coach Dave Rennie called Pulu the fastest man in New Zealand rugby when he signed with the Chiefs in 2016.

The Wallabies will meet the All Blacks at 10.05pm next Saturday.
