We are happy to announce that Malakai will be joining SD Legion. Malakai is a Tongan/Samoan who resides in Hawaii. He graduated from Kahuku High School in 2017 and has continued to play rugby for Hawaii Marist. Malakai attended the World Rugby Combine, where he stood out and was selected to attend USA Academy Rugby Camp.

“Malakai is a special player that not too many teams will know about. He has the ability to cover a number of positions but his biggest draw card is his raw power. He has a fancy free spirit but switches into full rugby mode when needed. We look forward to him showing this in the SD Legion colors” - Danny Lee, Head Coach, San Diego Legion.

“ I’m grateful for this opportunity. I hope to learn a lot from this privilege.” From Malakai
