Biography

Powerful Auckland winger made his Test debut against France in 2001 after representing Samoa in the 2000 World Cup. Meli was a try-scorer against Australia in the 28-10 Test loss in Wellington at the end of 2001. The following year Meli took his place in the Warriors grand final team that lost to the Roosters 20-8. In 2002 he scored a finals record five tries in the club’s 48-22 quarter-final win over the Bulldogs. Despite the Warriors’ poor form in 2004, Meli’s Test career continued against Australia and in England in the Tri Nations competition.
