Biography:

A local junior, Malakai is the older brother of Panthers teammate Dallin. He spent a number of years in the lower grades at Panthers, and even had a stint playing Rugby Union, before earning a long-awaited NRL debut in 2017. Shortly afterwards he was granted a mid-season move to Wests Tigers on the promise of more opportunities in the NRL. Now armed with that additional NRL experience, Malakai has returned to his hometown club.
