Salesi Tu'ipulotu "Charles" Piutau (born 31 October 1991) is a New Zealand rugby union player. He plays in the fullback (and occasionally wing) position for England club Bristol Bears in the Premiership, and formerly for New Zealand's national team the All Blacks.
He made his debut for Auckland in 2010, his first year out of high school, and was named Auckland Under 20 player of the year.
On 1 April 2015, it was announced Piutau would join Irish club Ulster from the start of the 2016–17 season. Before joining Ulster, Piutau signed for English club Wasps in the Aviva Premiership during the 2015-16 season. During his season at Wasps, Charles had a strong impact. Charles scored notable try in the 80th minute against Exeter Chiefs in the European Rugby Champions Cup quarter-final to help Wasps reach the semi-final. Piutau was nominated for the Aviva Premiership Player of the Season and was named in the Team of the Season. In August 2017, Ulster confirmed that Piutau would be leaving the province at the end of the 2017–18 Pro14 season to join Bristol Bears.
