16th Feb 1991 1.80m/99kg Outside Centre

An exciting young talent, Saili is a genuine threat to opposition defence. In 2011 he played for the New Zealand Under-20 team and made his provincial debut.

A member of the Blues wider training group in 2012 Saili made his Super Rugby debut later that season. Saili started his professional rugby career in 2011, with a start in the NPC for Auckland. In 2012 he commenced playing for the Blues in a match against the Stormers. In 2013, Saili was named a member of the All Blacks.

Saili joined the province at the end of July on completion of his 2015 contractual commitments with the Blues and is contracted for 2 seasons.

The 24 year-old made 42 Super Rugby appearances for the Blues, scoring seven tries, and represented Auckland in the ITM Cup on 31 occasions.

Saili 2016/2017 campaign has been set back due to a shoulder injury ruling him out for four months.
