Afa Pakalani made his international Rugby Sevens debut in Japan during the sixth stop of the 2013-2014 HSBC World Series.

As a promising youngster, Afa earned his Super Rugby call up for the NSW Waratahs in 2011 after impressing in the New Zealand ITM Cup.

The Tongan born talent captained his country’s under 20 team at the 2009 IRB Junior World Championship but will now make his international debut in the shortened version of the game.

Pakalani is a relative new comer to the sevens circuit but has taken little time to impress, giving the team a genuine x-factor with his dynamic speed, quick hands and lightening side-step.

Representative Honors: NSW Waratahs (2011-13)
