Brumbies winger Corey Toole admits his focus is solely on Super Rugby after making a successful debut in Friday's win over the NSW Waratahs.
Toole's acceleration was on full display in the second half of the six-point victory, sneaking down the sidelines past Izaia Perese before throwing a great flick pass back inside to Rob Valetini.
Whilst the try was denied due to a stud in touch, Toole couldn't be stopped minutes later, finishing off a break from fellow winger Andy Muirhead to put the Brumbies in front by 11 with 20 minutes to go.
He finished the game with three line breaks, four tackles and a pair of offloads to go with a game-high 100 metres.
“It was a really fast game, just like Sevens but with obviously bigger bodies and a lot less space out there but really happy to score and get the win,” Toole said after the match
“(The debut) is something I’ve worked really hard for being in the Academy for a couple of years so to finally run out with the boys in first grade is a dream come true.”
Toole returned to the Brumbies after a breakout stint with the Sevens program, having come through their Academy.
The Gungahlin product produced one of the best debut seasons in World Series history, guiding Australia to their first title after scoring 43 tries across 51 games.
It meant he was right at home in front of the 25,000-strong crowd at Allianz Stadium, having tested himself against the best at the Commonwealth Games and Rugby Sevens World Cup.
“It was quite similar to the grand finals I played in Sevens," Toole said.
"There was a massive crowd out there. I’m not sure how many were out there but It felt like a full house, I could hear everyone screaming and cheering from the sidelines, which made the game epic.
"It felt like I belonged out there. It's been a long pre-season, so I've got to adjust to the 15s game and felt really comfortable out there tonight."
With the Paris Olympics on the horizon, Toole reaffirmed his commitment to the 15-a-side format as the Brumbies push to contend for a Super Rugby Pacific title.
“They’ve both got good opportunities but I was in the Brumbies Academy and I know what the systems and culture around it is,” he explained.
“Once you get that opportunity to come back, I took it with both arms and was really excited to come back.
“I’m really happy to be back.”
