He played provincially for Auckland between 1994 and 2000, and for the Blues in the Super 12. He was drafted into the Chiefs in 1999. In 2000 he returned to the Blues before playing for Auckland in the National Provincial Championship. Following that season he moved to play in Japan.
He first played internationally for Samoa, playing two tests in 1994. He then stood down from international rugby for three years to enable him to play for New Zealand (the All Blacks). He played a total of seven tests and one non-international game for New Zealand—all in 1999. His first match was against his old side Samoa, who were also captained by his cousin, Pat Lam.
He played in several of that year's Tri-Nations matches before being selected for the squad for the 1999 Rugby World Cup. In that tournament he started only one match, against Italy in Huddersfield.
