Team and League Statistics
Lome joined Glasgow Warriors from the Hurricanes Super 14 team.

The speedy winger is recognisable by his traditional Samoan tattoo (pe'a).

Before his rugby career took off, Lome attended St Patricks College in Wellington, where he was a star basketball player for his college team.

It wasn't until he left college did he begin playing rugby union for the local club Marist St.Pat's, where he made his debut in the third grade division at fullback.

He made his provincial debut in the 1999 season of the National Provincial Championship in New Zealand, playing for Wellington. The next year he joined Taranaki and became the leading try scorer for the province that season. The following year he returned to his old province in Wellington.

In 2002 he played for the Hurricanes in the international Super 12 competition. Two years later he joined the Chiefs before returning to the Hurricanes.

Lome made his debut for Manu Samoa in 2002. He played on the wing in all matches for Samoa in the 2003 World Cup in Australia, except for the match against Georgia, Fa'atau scored one try during the World Cup. Lome describes his best rugby memory as making the Manu Samoa team.

The Hurricanes made it to the 2006 Super 14 final, where they went down to the Crusaders in bizarre weather. Although not finishing as champions, Lome was not only the top try scorer for the Hurricanes, but the lead try scorer of the season amassing a total a grand total of 9 tries through a combination of graceful, elusive yet blisteringly fast running.

Lome is also a strong christian and wears the initial "J" and "C" (for Jesus Christ) on his wristbands every match.
