Alipate Fatafehi is a Tongan rugby union player who plays for Lyon OU in the Top 14 and the Tonga national team. Fatafehi first played professional rugby for Otago in New Zealand from 2006-2008 but failed to secure a regular spot in the team, dropping down to the North Otago side for two games in 2008 before gaining a spot in the team for Otago's last game of 2008. His primary position is on the wing, although he played at fullback for Otago and more recently in line with global trends, has been used as a centre because of his size.

After finishing his season in 2008 he was called over to South Africa to have a trial with the Super Rugby franchise the Stormers. In his first match against the Boland Cavaliers he started on the left wing, playing well before sent to the sin bin for a dangerous tackle. After much promise he failed to be selected for the Super 14 squad for the 2009 Super 14 season, but signed a contract with the Western Province to play in the 2009 Vodacom Cup.
