Langilangi Haupeakui Signs With Glasgow

The rise of Langilangi Haupeakui is has been nothing short of meteoric. A year ago he was playing with the East Palo Alto Razorbacks in NorCal DI and now he's set to play in Europe after signing a contract with the Glasgow Warriors where he will join fellow Eagle Greg Peterson. The move is pending a work permit. Haupeakui joins the team after an injury to Adam Ashe. In just one year Haupeakui has gone from the Razorbacks to Sacramento, to being called in as an extra body in Eagles, to making the bench, to making an impact against Russia, to training with Harlequins, and now Glasgow. He is the first player to really take his opportunity with PRO Rugby and turn it into something huge.

  1. So Proud Of You! Love You nD we're gonna miss you! Lia!

  2. With the news that Tameilau didn't take up his contract with Newcastle, this is a great development. We need to get as many of our best players into higher level pro leagues overseas.

  3. He committed well for Glasgow tonight. Bad luck with second yellow....but he was super pumped. He has the talent, just needs to believe, and keep learning. / A Glasgow boy
