Biography:

A local junior of Wests Tigers, David Nofoaluma played Australian Schoolboys and NSW U/18’s in 2011 before stepping up to the club’s Holden Cup team, where he starred and helped the side record a maiden Premiership win in the junior competition.

He made his NRL debut as a teenager midway through the 2013 season, and quickly found his feet in the top flight. Nofoaluma scored the match-winning try in his second game, before crossing for the Dally M Try of the Year against Manly at his local Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

Nofoaluma was on the cusp of making his international debut for Samoa when selected in the squad for the side’s Pacific Test against in 2014, but would be forced to withdraw due to injury.

A regular for Wests Tigers, Nofoaluma would battle knee injuries throughout the following few years but continued to make an impact when on the field — making his representative debut for the Prime Minister’s XIII in 2015, scoring two tries in the 40-12 win over Papua New Guinea.

Missing just one game of the 2016 season, Nofoaluma ended the season as the team’s leading try-scorer with 14 and led the NRL in tackle breaks with 134 in easily the winger’s best season of his career so far. He would finally be rewarded with his debut for Samoa in the end-of-year Test against Fiji, playing out of position at fullback in the historic Test match in Apai, Samoa.

The Campbelltown kid would go one better in 2017 as he played in every game for Wests Tigers — leading the team in metres gained, tackle breaks, offloads and linebreaks. He was named in the Rugby League Players Association Dream Team, capping off a superb season that also saw him re-sign with the club on a four-year deal.

Nofoaluma reached 100 games for Wests Tigers in 2018 and became the club’s all-time top try-scorer at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in the process. In 2019, Nofoaluma became the club's all-time leading try-scoring winger (surpassing Pat Richards) and moved to fifth all-time with eight tries from his 14 games during the year.

Nofoaluma is signed through at Wests Tigers until the end of the 2021 season.
