Taufete'e started playing rugby when his now-wife introduced him to her family, which, at the time, was heavily involved in the Belmont Shore youth rugby program. The rest is history. Since meeting his in-laws, Taufete'e has gone on to play in varying levels of rugby across the world. In 2011, he was a member of the Belmont Shores u19s before moving up to the Belmont Shore D1 side a year later. In 2014, Taufete'e split time playing for Sciota Valley R.F.C. (Columbus, OH) and Otorohanga R.F.C. (Waikato, New Zealand). He made his full international debut at Rugby World Cup 2015 against eventual Semifinalist South Africa, and earned a professional contract with PRO Rugby's inaugural San Diego Breakers franchise shortly thereafter. In the fall of 2016, Taufete'e was given the responsibility of captaining the USA Rugby Selects at the Americas Pacific Challenge developmental tournament in Uruguay.
