At his peak for the Blues from 2007-08, Taniela Moa was rightly regarded as one of the top halfbacks in New Zealand and came extremely close to being selected for the All Blacks after being drafted into the squad to cover for injuries in 2008.

He previously played for the New Zealand Secondary Schools and New Zealand Under-21 teams.

Moa moved from Auckland to play for the Bay of Plenty in 2010 and joined the Chiefs for the 2011 Investec Super Rugby competition.
