2011 Soane Tonga'uiha

Soane Tonga'uiha was born in Houma, Tonga on 21st January 1982.

Soane began his professional career in 2004 playing for Auckland RFU in New Zealand. Following this he joined the Bedford Blues in 2005 and had an outstanding 2005-06 season, helping Bedford to a second-place finish behind rugby giants Harlequins, and a Powergen Trophy final place.

Soane moved to Northampton Saints at the start of the 2006-07 season. Initially, being behind Scottish, British and Irish Lions legend Tom Smith, Soane did not have too many starts in the Guinness Premiership. However, in the 2007-08 season, when Saints found themselves in National League 1, he excelled and earned a number of first team appearances as Northampton Saints cruised towards promotion at the end of the season.

Soane outstanding performances continued into the 2008-09 season when, combined with Tom Smith's move towards coaching, cemented his place in the match-day squad.

Soane has become something of a crowd favourite at Franklin's Gardens with the nickname 'Tiny' - an ironic take on his size.

On 27 January 2010, it was announced that Soane would join Saracens at the start of the 2010-11 season. However, in April 2010, he changed his mind and signed a new three-year contract with the Saints.

Soane's international career began in 2004 when he was selected to the newly formed Pacific Islanders rugby union team, a composite team made up of the best players from Samoa, Fiji and Tonga. In 2007, he travelled to France as part of the Tongan national rugby team to take part in the 2007 Rugby World Cup. By the end of the tournament Soane had 7 caps for Tonga.
