Mickey Paea

Mickey Paea is a Professional Rugby league player, currently playing in the English Super league with Hull FC. He previously played in the NRL with Newcastle Knights in Australia and made his debut with the mighty Sydney Roosters. He has also represented Tonga in two Rugby League World Cups, Captained the Junior Kangaroos in 2005 and won many other awards.

Mickey Paea is a true Champion and good friends with our own Semi Tadulala who admits, was taught a lot about his faith by Mickey. Mickey knows the importance of having support behind you. He started playing club Rugby at the age of 8 and clearly remembers his Mum always cheering him on from the hill and shouting his name.

Mickey said from being a child he always aimed to enjoy Rugby and have fun and so he wants you to do the same, to enjoy life, always try and do the right thing and love what you do.

Mickey now wants to be that same voice for you guys that his Mum was for him, cheering you on to succeed in life, despite your setbacks and although he doesn’t know each of you by name, he believes that God does and that because God loves you he’ll always be with you and cheering you on too.

Well we welcome Mickey with pride to our little family and we’ll all be watching out for him and cheering him on in the 2018 Super League Season and beyond.
