Ili was part of the Auckland Rugby set up since 2012, playing both 7's and 15's with the provincial side.
In September 2016, he was signed by Connacht as means of increasing their options all across the backline.
Ili made 15 appearances for Connacht during his 2 seasons at the club before returning to New Zealand linking up with Hawke's Bay Magpies for the 2018 Mitre 10 Cup.
His younger brother, Shea, is a professional basketball player.
