Tanner Vili (born 13 May 1976) is a New Zealand/Samoan rugby union footballer. He plays as a fly-half and full back

He played for Samoa at the 1999 Rugby World Cup and 2003 Rugby World Cup. In 2004 Vili's illegal clothesline tackle on Mark Cueto began the tension that eventually led to the mass brawl that led to the dismissal of Semo Sititi (yellow card), Alesana Tuilagi and Lewis Moody (both red cards), in some of the worst scenes of violence ever to be witnessed at Twickenham.[1]
