BIOGRAPHY

A FORMER Wesley College Head Prefect and First XV captain, Tupou Vaa’i is the latest player to etch their mark in the school’s proud history of producing All Blacks.

Vaa’i made his provincial debut for Taranaki as an 18 year old in 2018 and the following year made six appearances for the New Zealand Under 20 side. In 2020 Vaa’i stepped up to Super Rugby, playing all seven matches in Investec Super Rugby Aotearoa and emerging as bright prospect which the Chiefs recognised in extending his contract through to 2023.
