Biography

Soane Tonga’uiha, 1’95 m, 147 kg, is a real islands prop, he wrestles on the European fields since he was 21 years old, first with the Bedford Blues, then with the Northampton Saints. Tongan native, he arrived at Auckland at the age of eight. World champion for New-Zealand with the U19 in 2001 and U21 in 2003, yet Soane Tonga’uiha doesn’t catch the eye of any Super 14 league recruiters, in which his former teammates manage to do, Joe Rokocoko and Kevin Mealamu in particular. He therefore went to England and proved his incredible agility and quickness in running plays. He is one of these props that are capable of initiating a fifty meters run to score a try. He also has the Polynesians DNA to win harsh plays and tough rucks. Winger “néo-francilien”, Adrien Planté could witness it after Tongan’s enormous tackle in the HCup semi-finals in 2011. “When he settles for a scrum, you can feel him on your shoulders. By his weight, he is very imposing and stifles his opponent almost without moving. I don’t know if challenging such a monument would be a very good advice to give, especially if you want to measure your strength.” Said international prop, Nicolas Mas. Eight years after his arrival in Europe, he crosses the channel to join the Top 14 with Racing Metro 92 and one thing is sure, even if he seems a little shy at first, we should quickly hear from him this season.
