Thomas Leuluai

Player Bio

Kiwi Tommy Leuluai spent 12 years as a player with Wigan before making the transition to Assistant Coach at the end of 2022.

Son of former Hull FC and New Zealand player James Leuluai, he made his NRL debut for New Zealand Warriors in May 2003, becoming the youngest player to ever play for the Club.

A New Zealand international, he made his debut for the Kiwis aged 18 in 2003, won the World Cup in 2008 and played his final game in a warm-up match against Leeds Rhinos in October 2022.

In his club career in the UK, Tommy started with London Broncos before signing for Wigan ahead of the 2007 season.

He went on to make 327 appearances for the Club and won all there is to win in the game, including three League Leaders’ Shields, two Super Leagues, two Challenge Cup, a World Club Challenge and a Harry Sunderland trophy.

After hanging up his boots, Tommy made the switch into his coaching career as an Assistant Coach to Matt Peet, alongside former teammate and fellow Assistant Coach Sean O’Loughlin. In his first full season on the coaching staff, Tommy helped the club to the League Leaders Shield and a Grand Final victory.

In 2024, Leuluai was assistant Coach as Wigan secured a World Club Challenge victory over Penrith Panthers at the DW Stadium and in March of that year it was announced that he had signed a seven-year deal to see him remain with the Club until at least the end of the 2030 season.

Sean O’Loughlin is sponsored by Chris & Nicola Martindale.
