Topou was born in Auckland, New Zealand.
Tupou was one of a small group of players still eligible for the side in 2010. In 2010 he trained during the pre-season with the senior side and was named to make his first grade début for the Warriors on 4 April 2010 against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles.
In 2012 Tupou re-signed with the Warriors until the end of the 2014 season.
Tupou joined the Canberra Raiders on 25 June 2013. He had felt as though he was on the outer with the Warriors under new coach Matt Elliot who had preferred others to him on the wing during the 2013 season.
Tupou joined the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats in July 2015. Big Bill is well known by Wakefield Trinity fans and super league fans alike for his aggressive and fearless style of play, a powerful centre.
Tupou scored a memorable eleven minute hatrick in Wakefield's 42-30 win away at Wigan Warriors.
