Filimoni, originally from Fiji, has played professional rugby for Canterbury, NZ in the NPC (National Provincial Championship) and then signed on with Panasonic Wild Knights (in Japan). We look forward to him breaking tackles and scoring tries this season.

“It’s great to have someone like Fili join Legion. He’s big and explosive which is exactly what we were after and I’m looking forward to not only work with Fili but see him tear it apart in the MLR” from Head Coach Danny Lee

““Grateful for the opportunity to head over and play for the Legion in 2023. I’ve only watched the MLR from afar and I’ve been really impressed with the level of rugby being played. Excited to call San Diego home for the next few seasons. Can’t wait to get there. Lesgoooooo”” from Filimoni
