Watch our first interview with summer signing Malakai Fekitoa as the centre settles into life at Munster.

Born and raised in Ha’apai, Tonga, Fekitoa moved to Auckland as a teenager after earning a scholarship at Wesley College thanks to his performances for the Tonga Sevens age-grade sides.

He made his All Blacks debut in 2014 and helped the Highlanders to their first-ever Super Rugby title the following year.

Malakai featured in New Zealand’s successful 2015 Rugby World Cup campaign and scored eight tries in 24 appearances for the All Blacks between 2014 and 2017.

Fekitoa departed the Highlanders for Toulon in 2017 and spent two seasons in France before joining Wasps, where he has spent the past three years.

On the international front, he now represents his native Tonga and has lined out for the senior side and the sevens team.
