Fane Haungatau began playing rugby at age nine as her father both played, coached and also started a rugby league in the local area. Neice of 2016 Olympian Joanna Fa'avesi and cousin of 2016 Olympian and most capped Men's Sevens player Folau Niua, Haungatau has spent her life surrounded by rugby.

From 2015-2017, she was named a USA Rugby High School All-American in both sevens and fifteens and was soon sent an invitation to join the Women's Sevens Residency Program to continue her development full-time.

In November of 2018, Haungatau was selected to the Women's Eagles full squad for the Autumn Internationals. And though she still awaits her first cap, she was selected to start at center the following year, in April of 2019, for the Women's Eagles historic matchup with Barbarian F.C. (uncapped) in Glendale, CO.

Later that year in June Fane earned her first cap against England in the opening round of Women's Rugby Super Series in San Diego where she also became the youngest Women's Eagle to debut at 18.
