In a storied career that has seen him play around the globe, Nigel Ah Wong returns to New Zealand and is set to make his Super Rugby return for Moana Pasifika. The Manu Samoa international is a unit of a winger, standing six foot four and weighing in at 102 kg. His power and athleticism on the edge will be threatening for oppositions.
Born in Wellington, the Taita College Old Boy grew up in Brisbane, where he broke through to the professional ranks with the Brumbies. With 31 appearances for the Canberra based team, Ah Wong is no stranger to the Super Rugby game and will be a strong figure for Moana Pasifika’s new backs to look up to.
From the villsges of Alafua and Vaivase, Ah Wong’s connection to Samoa has seen him represent his nation 22 times, including appearing for the Manu Samoa at the Rugby World Cup 2023.
