One of Australian Rugby's most popular characters, 'Taf' remains a vital cog in the Qantas Wallabies front row arsenal in his 15th year of international Rugby. A proud western Sydney man, Polota-Nau moved to the Western Force ahead of the 2017 Super Rugby season. Outside of Rugby, Polota-Nau has a degree in IT, and earned the rare distinction of making his Test debut before his Super Rugby debut for the New South Wales Waratahs.
