A strong scrummaging tighthead prop, Allan Ala’alatoa has followed in the footsteps of his father Vili who represented Manu Samoa at the 1991 Rugby World Cup. He anchored the Newington College 1st XV scrum for two seasons (2010-11), the second as captain, and from there represented his country at both schools and aged levels. Ala’alatoa was such a talent that he won selection to three successive Junior World Championships with the Australia U20s. He signed with the ACT Brumbies in 2014 and made a surprise debut, off the bench, in the Super Rugby qualifying final against the Chiefs in Canberra. In 2016, Ala’alatoa made his Test debut against New Zealand.

A robust Super Rugby season with the ACT Brumbies saw Ala’alatoa rewarded with a first Test cap, against the All Blacks in Sydney. Allan won nine Test caps from a possible 12 in his first international season, including selection on the Spring Tour, and won his starting debut against France in Paris. 


Selected in the run-on XV for the opening five Tests. Went on to win a total of 13 caps for the year, only missing selection once. 


He was a late withdrawal from the match day squad for the opening Test against Ireland after he took a knock on the ankle at Thursday  training. He missed the rest of the Irish series before he returned for The Rugby Championship and the Spring Tour. Ala’alatoa earned nine caps from the year’s final 10 Tests.
