An exciting prospect making his way to Moana Pasifika in 2024 is backrower Semisi Paea. Having previously being signed to the New England Free Jacks in the MLR, the Rotorua Boy’s product makes his way back to New Zealand’s shores where he’s set to take on his first season in the Super Rugby Pacific.
Having represented the ‘Ikale Tahi at the recent Rugby World Cup 2023, Paea has a bright future at just 24 years old. From the villages of Falaleu in Vava’u, and Houmakelikao in Tongatapu, Tonga, Paea is set to be a star for the ‘Ikale Tahi for many years to come.
