A product of Marlborough Boys' College in New Zealand, Samuela has rich rugby heritage in his family as he is the younger brother of Chiefs prop Atunaisa Moli.

Lousi spent the 2012 season playing for the Auckland Vulcans in the NSW Cup before making his National Rugby League debut in round 20 as a last minute replacement.

He signed with the Waratahs for the 2015 season but, after gaining four caps, he suffered a shoulder injury which ended his Super Rugby campaign.

He joined the New South Wales Country Eagles team in the National Rugby Championship for the 2015 season.

In 2016 he joined Sydney club Southern Districts. July 2016 saw the lock being signed by the Hurricanes and Wellington on a two-year deal, joining the Super Rugby franchise in the 2016 season.

In July 2017, Lousi started in the Hurricanes draw with the British and Irish Lions. Lousi played ten matches for the Hurricanes in 2017 and continued his strong form through the Mitre 10 Cup with Wellington.

In May 2018, Hurricanes announced that Lousi will extend his time with the Wellington-based outfit after signing on until the end of 2019.

Louisi, who arrived at the Hurricanes after playing for the Waratahs, was a reliable squad member in 2018 and quickly showed himself to be one of the most consistent players on the club’s roster.

In April 2019 he signed for the Scarlets. After 30 appearances for the side, he was rewarded with a new deal in February 2022.

However, Moli signed with Moana Pasifika for the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season. He made his debut off the bench in the first game the side played against the Crusaders

In his 2023 Super Rugby Season, he played 13 games for Moana, starting 10 and scoring 4 tries.

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