Profile

Anitelea Tuilagi, often known as Andy Tuilagi, joined the Dragons in December 2011 having recovered from a long lay-off with a broken arm.

Anitelea was born in Apia, Samoa, one of 6 rugby playing Tuilagi brothers. He signed his first professional contract with Leicester Tigers after spending a year in their Academy, following in the footsteps of elder brothers Freddie, Henry and Alesana. He originally signed a 2 year deal with the Tigers but was sent out on loan for the second year to Leeds Carnegie.

By the age of 21 Anitelea had already accumulated nine caps for Samoa.

Tuilagi helped Leeds win promotion to the Premiership in his first season at the club and was rewarded with a full 2 year contract at the beginning of the 2007/2008. Anitelea missed the beginning of Leeds’ Premiership campaign as he was selected for the Samoan 2007 Rugby World Cup squad. His opportunities at Headingley were limited, making just seven starts for Leeds in the Premiership, scoring 1 try.

He left Leeds half way through his contract and signed for Sale Sharks on a 4 year deal in 2008. Anitelea had an injury plagued 3 years with Sale Sharks, including a long lay-off with a broken arm, but still managed 42 games for the Sharks.

Andy played his way back to fitness through the final few games of 2011 and went on to appear 14 times by the end of the season. He scored his first Dragons try in the final pool game of the Amlin Challenge Cup at Rodney Parade against I Cavalieri Prato.
