My name is Kenneth Leota.  Originally from Auckland New Zealand. I immigrated  to Melbourne Australia with my family when I was 2 years old. I am one of six children. My heritage is Samoan Maori and I am a proud New Zealander. The three postulates of my life; family, school and rugby.


I began playing rugby at the age of 6 and what I have achieved with my sporting career thus far has been satisfying and fulfilling. I have travelled Europe playing Rugby and I've toured Australia on numerous occasions and with each tour my ambition of becoming a professional rugby player is further cemented in my mind.

Outside of rugby I would like to pursue a career in the medical industry. I am currently studying in my last year of college and I will move on to Biomedical Science at University. Though I wish to succeed in rugby I will continue to create work opportunities outside of rugby...

Through the successes of my career there has also been some set backs and through these set backs I have learned to be resilient and to be accountable. I have an amazing support group under me and I know what I want for myself. I've worked hard to get to this point and I'm ready to work even harder.
