Penivea Pahulu never played rugby growing up, despite the fact that he was born in Otahuhu, Auckland, New Zealand. His mother asked him not to, so he played tennis and ran cross-country instead. The one time he did play rugby, he was hooked. Another experience that drew him to rugby was watching Jonah Lomu play at Eden Park.
In the USA, Pahulu has been able to fuel his passion for rugby by playing for UVU, the Humless 7s, Provo Steelers and the Utah Select 7s.
