Lolagi Visinia has been turning heads with his pace and mature kicking game ever since high school.

The Kelston Boys’ High School graduate started out with his school’s First XV, where he made the NZ Secondary Schools squad and helped the team to a national top four position in 2011.

Soon after, Visinia was recruited to the Auckland Mitre 10 Cup team in 2012 and as a teenager, he was named in the NZ Sevens team to tour Hong Kong and Japan in 2012. In 2013 he made the NZ Under 20 team.

2013 was also the year that the winger and fullback earned his first Blues cap, after earning the respect of Blues Under 18 selectors.
