In 2002 he played with New Haven Rugby in the United States and led the club to a Division II national championship playing primarily at #10. In 2004, he debuted for Nelson Bays, who later merged with Marlborough to form the Tasman Rugby Union. In 2008, he made his Crusaders debut. Fotuali'i had a successful year in 2010 scoring five tries for the Crusaders and starting most games ahead of All Blacks halfback Andy Ellis until he was suspended for breaking Crusaders protocol. However, from his impressive form on the field for the Crusaders many thought Fotuali'i would be very close to All Black selection.

In 2010 Fotuali'i chose to represent Samoa for their 2010 end-of-year tour. He made his debut for them against Japan where he scored Samoa's only try to win the game 13-10 and was man of the match.

Early in 2013, he was still with Ospreys, but there was speculation that he might join another club in Europe. He rejected a new deal by the Ospreys and signed for Northampton Saints on 24 January 2013.
