Allan Alaalatoa (born 28 January 1994) is an Australian rugby union player who plays as a prop for the Brumbies in Super Rugby.
Allan's father Vili is a fan of cricket and named him after the Australia cricket captain Allan Border. Alaalatoa's nickname with the brumbies squad is also rumoured to be Captain Grumpy.
Alaalatoa hails from a rugby family with father Vili playing for Samoa in the 1991 Rugby World Cup and brother Michael also going on to play professionally with the New South Wales Waratahs. He attended Newington College where he played for three years in the 1st XV and completed the HSC in 2011. His big break came ahead of the 2014 Super Rugby season when he was named in the Brumbies extended playing squad. He didn't get any game time during the regular season, but surprisingly was given a debut off the replacements bench in the Brumbies 32-30 victory over the Chiefs during the Super Rugby playoffs.
Alaalatoa is in the rare position of having represented his country in 3 consecutive IRB Junior World Championships in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
In 2016, Alaalatoa was named in the Wallabies preliminary 39-man squad for the 2016 series against England. He has been selected for his first test against New Zealand, starting on the bench in the Bledisloe Cup on 20 August 2016.As of 22 July 2016
