Samoan born St. Mary’s junior who played Under 20s in 2014 to 2016 and NSW Cup in 2017 before being promoted to the NRL squad for the 2018 season.

He made his NRL debut for the Panthers early in the 2018 season against the Bulldogs, starting on the wing. He would soon cement a spot in the NRL squad, making 20 appearances that season. He would only cross for four tries but scored one of the more memorable four pointers that season when in the final premiership round versus the Storm he took an intercept and from a standing start managed to run 55 metres untouched. However, his time at the Panthers drew to a close at season’s end after signing a three-year contract with Canterbury soon after his debut in May.

He was limited to 13 appearances across an injury interrupted three seasons, and was released at the end of 2021.

He returned to the Panthers in 2021, and played the majority of the season in NSW Cup. His solitary NRL appearance was in the final premiership round of the 2022 premiership season versus North Queensland, starting on the wing. He was a member of the NSW Cup squad that performed the premiership / state championship double, however is currently off contract for the 2023 season.
