Paenga-Amosa's rugby journey started when he moved to Sydney as a four-year-old.

He started playing rugby league until he was 15 and also spent time studying theology, landscaping, labouring and scaffolding as he plied his true trade with club rugby outfit Southern Districts.

During his time with the Southern Districts Paenga-Amosa worked as a garbage man to supplement his salary.

A standout player for Southern Districts side in Sydney's Shute Shield, Paenga-Amosa made his NRC debut for the Greater Sydney Rams in 2016.

He made the switch to NSW Country Eagles in 2017.

He was looked at and then overlooked by the Rebels before signing for the Reds ahead of the 2018 Super Rugby season and flourished under Brad Thorn and earned a Wallabies call up.

He made his test debut in the starting XV against Ireland in the first of three test against Ireland in June.

Paenga-Amosa went into the 2018 Rugby Championship with 3 test caps.

One of four players to play every match for the Reds during the 2019 Super Rugby season, he finished as Queensland’s second equal-highest try-scorer with five tries, alongside Samu Kerevi and Chris Feauai-Sautia.
