Alfie To'oala Vaeluaga (born 30 January 1981) is a professional rugby union player who played for La Rochelle, and Leeds. He was recruited to Bristol the start of the 2006 Aviva Premiership season to bolster the Bristol back row, having played for both Orrell and Plymouth Albion against Bristol when the team was in National Division One.[1] He moved to newly promoted side London Welsh for the 2012/13 season in the Aviva Premiership. After his release, he rejoined Rotherham Titans for the 2013/14 season in the RFU Championship.[2]
