Filo Paulo

Born in Wellington, of Samoan heritage, Paulo played for Auckland Blues where he played 26 times at Super Rugby level and made 35 appearances for North Harbour in the ITM Cup competition since 2008.

A physical player and strong line out jumper, Paulo can play in the second row or blindside flanker and made his international debut for Samoa in their Autumn 2012 tests, playing against Canada and France. He was also part of the Samoa team that defeated Wales at the Millennium Stadium in November.

Standing at 6ft 6in tall and weighing in at 19 stone, Paulo is certainly a formidable presence on the pitch and had a stint with Ulster early on in his career before returning to New Zealand.

Paulo made his debut for the region against Benetton Treviso in 2013 and made five appearance for the Blues in his first season.
