Albert Tuisue, born on June 6, 1993, is a Fijian professional rugby union player currently associated with Gloucester in Premiership Rugby. He primarily plays as a lock or back row player. Tuisue is well-known for his aggressive playing style on the field.

Before embarking on his rugby career, Tuisue worked as a police officer in Fiji but decided to leave that profession to pursue his passion for rugby.

Tuisue's playing career started in the Shute Shield and the National Rugby Championship (NRC). He later joined the Fijian Drua team and made his debut for Fiji in 2018. In the same year, he played a crucial role in helping the Fijian Drua win the NRC championship. Tuisue's outstanding performance in the final against Queensland Country at Churchill Park in Lautoka earned him the Man of the Match award.

In 2019, Tuisue signed with London Irish. He quickly became a regular player in the London Irish side, making 24 appearances and scoring eight tries during the 2019/20 season. He reached the milestone of 50 appearances for the club during the 2020/21 Premiership season, in a match against Exeter Chiefs.

On January 17, 2022, Tuisue signed with Premiership rivals Gloucester and joined them for the 2022-23 season. Tuisue is a versatile and powerful forward who can play in both the back row and lock positions. In addition to his club performances, he has also represented Fiji, notably featuring in Fiji's historic win over France in November 2018.

Ahead of the Rugby World Cup 2023, Tuisue has been named in the training squad for Fiji.
