Ligi Sao


Ligi Sao was one of several new recruits to arrive at Hull FC ahead of the 2020 season.

The Samoan international is a powerful and mobile forward who can play across the pack, having featured at prop, back row and loose forward.

The Auckland-born forward joined New Zealand Warriors as a junior in 2012, helping their Toyota Cup side to an impressive second-place finish, alongside Hull star Carlos Tuimavave.

His impressive performances for the U20s saw him snapped up by Manly where he made his NRL debut, before returning to the Warriors three years later to play under former Hull FC cup winner Stephen Kearney.

Sao made his World Cup debut for Samoa against Greece in October 2022, helping his international side on to a 72-4 victory in Doncaster.
