Alama Ieremia

Alama Ieremia has the distinction of scoring the first ever try in Super rugby, against the Blues in the inaugural Super 12 match in Palmerston North in 1996.

Born and raised in Samoa, Ieremia came to New Zealand to study at Victoria University in Wellington and play rugby. A hard running and strong defensive midfield back, he first made the Wellington Lions NPC side in 1992 as a 21-year old, the first of eight seasons with the Lions. His crowning moment for Wellington was winning the NPC title in 2000 in his final first class match in New Zealand.
