Luke Tagi, born on June 23, 1997, in Vione, Fiji, is a Fijian international rugby union player known for his skills and flair as a prop. He currently plays for Provence Rugby in Pro D2.

Tagi began his career with the amateur team Suva in the Fijian National Championship 3. In 2018, he joined the Fijian Drua, a team competing in the Australian NRC Championship, and played a part in their victorious campaign.

During his first professional season, he appeared in eight games, primarily as a substitute.

In 2019, Tagi joined Fijian Latui, a team in the Global Rapid Rugby competition. Later that year, he signed a three-season contract with Stade Français in the Top 14.

Although he had limited game time in Paris, playing 18 games over two seasons, he was released from his contract in June 2021. Shortly after, he joined Provence Rugby in Pro D2 on a two-season contract. In December 2022, it was announced that Tagi would be joining Aviron Bayonnais from the 2023-2024 season, signing a contract until 2026.

On the international stage, Tagi represented the Fiji Under-20 team in 2017, participating in the World Under-20 Trophy. He also played for the Fiji Warriors (Fiji A) between 2018 and 2019, taking part in the Pacific Challenge and the 2018 Nations Cup.

In June 2019, he earned his first international cap for Fiji in a test match against the Māori All Blacks. Although he was initially included in the pre-selection squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, he was not ultimately named in the final group of 31 players for the tournament.

Luke Tagi's dynamic playing style and ability to create opportunities with his offloading skills have made him a valuable asset to his teams both domestically and internationally.

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