Biography:

Following an impressive preseason, the exciting fullback was upgraded to a fulltime NRL contract with the One New Zealand Warriors for the 2023 season.
Brought to the club on a train and trial deal, the 23-year-old was one of a host of players who excelled in the One New Zealand Warriors’ 48-12 win over Wests Tigers in their first NRL trial at Mount Smart Stadium.
He had an exceptional rookie season in the Queensland Cup last year when he won the Petero Civoniceva Medal as the competition’s best and fairest while also being named the rookie of the year.
Tuaupiki consistently dominated opposition sides in the Queensland Cup last season.
Averaging 147 metres a game, he scored 14 tries, made 105 tackle breaks and 25 line breaks as well as providing 22 try assists.
While he was both in Sydney, he’s from Taharoa on the southern side of Kawhia Harbour, which is also home for teammate Te Maire Martin.
