Campese Ma'afu, (born (1984-12-19)December 19, 1984) is a Fiji professional Rugby union footballer. Ma'afu was selected to the Fijian National squad in 2010. His older brother, Salesi Ma'afu plays for the Australian Wallabies. A third brother, the youngest, Apakuka, has played sevens for Tonga.

The Ma'afu family made an especially interesting mark in rugby history in 2010 when the two brothers, Salesi and Campese, squared off against each other in a test match between Australia and Fiji. Salesi played for the Wallabies at tight-head Prop while his brother Campese played for Fiji at loose-head prop.
