    Ma'a Allan Nonu born 21 May 1982 in Wellington, New Zealand is a professional rugby union player from New Zealand. Nonu plays for the Wellington Lions in the NPC, the Hurricanes in the Super 14, and the New Zealand All Blacks. He plays in the second-five eighth position, but can also cover centre and wing.

    Of Samoan descent, Nonu is known for his blonde-streaked dreadlocks and former penchant for wearing eyeliner on the field. He is equally well-known for his explosiveness and powerful attacking runs and regularly breaks the defensive line at will. He has enough speed to play on the wing, but lacks the raw pace of a specialist in the position. All Blacks coach Graham Henry has described him as "probably the best linebreaker in this game in this country." Henry and his All Blacks coaching predecessor John Mitchell have mainly used Nonu as an impact player off the bench in Tests. He has started only 4 of his 12 Tests.

    Nonu has a similar attacking skillset to former All Black centre Tana Umaga: like Umaga, he is an exceptional crash ball runner who excels at breaking the line and creating space for outside backs. In 2005, Henry described Nonu as "young Tana,"underlining the impression that he was being groomed as a potential successor to Umaga.
