Tafai took over the captaincy of the New Zealand Sevens team in December 2005. The hardworking loose forward was a member of the Hawke’s Bay side that won the last ever NPC Division Two title in 2005. His consistent performances for his province led to his recall to the New Zealand Divisional XV after he last played for the side in 2000.
