Biography

Tongan powerhouse and fan favourite Ukuma Ta’ai enjoyed another stellar season with the Giants and his performances were rewarded with an International call-up to the 2017 Tonga World Cup squad.

His friendly nature off the field and business manner on it has seen him make his way into the hearts of many Claret and Gold supporters.

His bruising runs, strong work ethic and brutal defence mean that Ta’ai has a great impact for the team whether starting or coming off the bench.

2017 provided another consistent one for Ta’ai as he featured 19 times and scored five tries which meant he hit a landmark 150 points for the Giants, this coming a year after making his 100th appearance for the Claret and Gold in 2016.

Ukuma is sponsored by Annie, Simeon & Ila.
