Sione Tuipulotu

Outside Centre

Scottish-qualified back Sione Tuipulotu joined Glasgow Warriors from Yamaha Jubilo ahead of the 2021/22 season

Comfortable on the wing or in midfield, he made the move to Scotstoun after his second stint with the Japanese outfit concluded at the end of the 2021 Top League campaign.

A dynamic presence with ball in hand, the former Melbourne Rebel made history in 2016 when he became the first homegrown player to represent the franchise in Super Rugby.

In total, Tuipulotu made 11 appearances for the Rebels, also impressing for Melbourne Rising with 12 tries in 32 appearances in the NRC.

He was part of the Australia squad for the World Rugby U20 Championships in 2015, 2016 and 2017, scoring a brace against a Scotland side containing future team-mates Scott Cummings and Zander Fagerson in the 2016 tournament.

Tuipulotu was named in the Scotland squad for the 2021 summer tour, qualifying courtesy of Greenock-born grandmother Jaqueline Thomson.

He made his Scotland debut in October 2021, starting at outside centre in the Autumn Nations Series match against Tonga at BT Murrayfield.

He made his club debut against Ulster in the opening match of the 2021/22 season – setting up a try for George Horne – before crossing for his first try in Glasgow colours away to Zebre Parma in October 2021.
