Miracle Faiʻilagi, born on August 31, 1999, is a Samoan rugby union player who currently plays for Moana Pasifika in Super Rugby. He primarily plays as a lock or flanker. Faiʻilagi was named in the Moana Pasifika squad for the 2023 Super Rugby Pacific season.

Faiʻilagi was born in Samoa and began his rugby journey there, playing junior rugby and club rugby for Vailele Rugby Club. He showcased his talent and represented Samoa A in the 2020 World Rugby Pacific Challenge, gaining valuable experience at the representative level.

In 2021, he transitioned to the Samoa Sevens team, representing Samoa in the shorter format of the game. Although he missed out on selection for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, he continued to develop as a player.

In 2022, Faiʻilagi had the opportunity to attend a World Rugby talent combine, which served as a platform for young players to showcase their skills and catch the attention of professional teams.

His performance at the combine impressed the scouts from Moana Pasifika, leading to his signing with the team for their 2023 squad. This marked a significant step forward in his career, as he joined the ranks of the Super Rugby franchise and had the opportunity to compete at a higher level of competition.

With his combination of size, skill, and versatility in playing both lock and flanker positions, Faiʻilagi brings a valuable asset to the Moana Pasifika team. As he continues to develop and gain experience in Super Rugby, he has the potential to make a significant impact on the field.

Ahead of the World Rugby Cup 2023, Fai'ilagi has been named in the squad for Samoa.
