Liaki Moli is a New Zealand rugby union player, who specialises as a lock forward. He played for the Blues in Super Rugby from 2012 to 2014, and signed for the Japanese Sunwolves for the 2016 season. Also, he has played for Auckland in the ITM Cup since 2010.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Moli was selected for the New Zealand U20 side in 2010, for whom he was a standout player at the world championship in Argentina. He made his Auckland debut in the same year.[1] He was also named the age-group player of the year for 2010 by the NZRU.[2]

Super Rugby[edit]

A serious shoulder injury at the end of 2010 ruled Moli out of contention for a Super Rugby contract in 2011, meaning 2012 is his first season with the Blues.

He was signed by the Japanese Sunwolves for the 2016 season.
