|Rugby union career|
Weighing in at 75 kg and only 1.75m tall, he is one of the smaller professional rugby players. However, his electric pace and low centre of gravity enabled him to be the 2nd highest Premiership try scorer for the 2005-06 season; and top scorer in the 2006-07 season.
His skills and leadership made him one of the best ever 7s players for his country. As well as representing the 7s side, he has played for the senior 15-a-side team, representing his nation at the 2007 and 2011 World Cups.
During the 2005-6 season, Lemi quickly impressed, scoring 8 tries in 12 appearances, and became a crowd favourite at the Memorial Stadium. He signed a two-year contract extension in spring 2006.
Despite Bristol Rugby's relegation at the end of the 2008–9 season, Lemi still managed to win The Sunday Times Try of the Season Award for the try he scored against Bath Rugby in the first game of the season. He was the joint second top try scorer in the 2008-09 Guinness Premiership season.
Following Bristol's relegation, it was confirmed in April that Lemi would be leaving the club. He was initially linked with Llanelli Scarlets. However, in May, it was confirmed that Lemi had signed a contract with Wasps. In 2012, Lemi signed a contract with Worcester Warriors and was reunited with former coach Richard Hill.
In 2014, Lemi was re-signed by Bristol, which would see him leave the Worcester Warriors at the end of the 2014 season and helped Bristol gain promotion the Aviva Premiership.
