Blessed with outrageous natural talent, Ali began the rugby league journey that would eventually see reap and large haul of titles and awards. Ali began playing at the Mangere East Sea Eagles in Auckland . By 1997 Ali had caught the eye of the national selectors making the Junior Kiwis that season and again in 1998. The 110kg giant made his NRL debut in 1998 against the North Sydney Bears in round 6. By 2000 and with almost 40 NRL games under his beat Ali was selected to represent the Kiwis at the 2000 world cup. Debuting against the Cook Island and scoring a try at Reading. By 2002 Ali was wowing those in the know and he was widly regarded as the best second rower in the game and played a leading part in the New Zealand Warriors making the 2002 grand final. As 2002 drew to a close Ali was again selected to tour with the Kiwis and he would play 7 out of 8 games including 3 tests against Great Britain, the test against Wales and the test against France. When Ali made his stance on where rugby league stood in his life and that family and church came first a world wide duel code fight broke out for his signature. Eventually Leeds won the race for Ali's signature and he would stay with the Super League club 7 seasons, enjoying much success. With his world class ball skills Ali made the Super League dream team of 2004. 2005 would start with a bang for Ali when his Leeds club beat the Sydney Bulldogs in that years World Club Challenge. He again made the 2005 Super League dream team. 2009 would see a brief return to the black jersey of New Zealand when he toured with the New Zealand All Golds side to commemorate the tour of the original code switches that kick started rugby league in New Zealand, Australia and across the pacific. The name All Gold was originally a term of derision coined by a rugby union friendly media back in 1908. The media of the day choice to ignore the fact that the players and management of the original All Golds tour put up there own money to make the tour and all lost money at the end of it. At the end of 2012 Ali switched clubs and joined the Wakefield Wildcats, also a ESL club.
