A bulldozing winger Hosea Saumaki represented the Tonga 7s before moving to Japan, where he attended University and made strides towards becoming one of the dangerous attacking weapons in Japan's Top League.
Nicknamed the ‘The Tongan Godzilla’ Saumaki is in the similar mould to other iconic left wingers like Lomu, Nadolo and Savea.
Saumaki has expressed that he wants to represent Japan at test level but may need to use the Olympic loophole in order to do so.
In January 2018 he was called into the Sunwolves 2018 Super Rugby squad and will look to make an impact in his debut season.
