Since Daniel Tupou's NRL debut with the Sydney Roosters in 2012, he has enjoyed a stunning Rugby League career that has seen him win three premierships and earn representative honours with the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues, Tonga and Australia.
In just his second first-grade game, he scored an incredible hat-trick that flaunted his athletic ability which has culminated into countless tries for the foundation club – none more memorable than his leap over David Williams in the 2013 NRL Grand Final.
Just twelve months prior to that memorable premiership victory, he helped the Newtown Jets claim their first NSW Cup (now Canterbury Cup NSW) Grand Final win since 1974, while also earning his place in the Team of the Year.
Heading into his eighth full season of first-grade with the Roosters in 2020, Tupou has scored 93 tries in 162 games, and represented NSW and Tonga on four and eight occasions respectively.
While he is a prolific finisher, he has also gained a reputation as being a hard-working outside-back who isn't afraid to take the tough carries out of his own end.
Since his blistering season for the Jets in 2012, he has enjoyed a strong rise to prominence and has undoubtedly been a key member of the Roosters' premiership triumphs in 2013, 2018, and 2019.
