Gene Robert Ngamu began playing rugby league for the Marist Saints club in Auckland before shifting to the Northcote Tigers in 1992. Genes move to the Tigers was made thanks to a scholarship with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles who had an agreement with Northcote at the time. However before the scholarship began Gene was called up to join the Manly club full time. With Genes shift to Sydney complete and with a two year contract signed with Manly Gene was selected in the Junior Kiwi team of 1992. Gene eventually played 9 first grade games with the Sea Eagles but was unable to force his way past club legends Cliff Lyons and Jeoff Toovey with the later being the current Sea Eagles NRL coach (2012). When the Sea Eagles learned that Gene had signed to return home to Auckland for the Warriors debut season they declined to extend Genes contract beyond the initial 2 years. Gene signed to play with the South Sydney Rabbitohs on a one year contract for the 1994 season but managed only 1 top grade game for Souths. Gene was in the starting side against the Brisbane Broncos for the first ever game in 1995 for Auckland. Gene stayed with Auckland for 4 seasons and played 81 games for the NRL club. Gene holds the record for the most points in a game for the club along with Ivan Cleary and James Maloney. Ngamu signed with the Hudderfield-Sheffield club (a combined Huddersfield Giants and Sheffield Eagles entity which no longer exists with both clubs reverting back to single entities). His two seasons at the combined club was not a happy one and he quit the club in 2000. Gene returned to the Manly district and joined the local Manly rugby union club but retired after a brief time with the club. Gene made a brief return to rugby league in 2005 playing for the North Harbour Dolphins in the Phelan Shield and ultimately called in the North Harbour Tigers team for the later half of the Bartercard cup of that season. Gene debuted for the Kiwis in 1993, playing 25 tests. Gene played at two world cups. One for the Kiwis in 1995 and one for the New Zealand Maori team in the 2000 world cup. Today Gene works as a care taker/groundsman for an Auckland school.

Meti is the brother of former netballer Ana Noovao. Meti begane his pathway in rugby league at the Otahuhu Leopards in the Auckland rugby league. In 1994 Meti joined the Auckland City Vulcans in the Lion Red cup. The Auckland Warriors signed him to a development contract in 1995 and was handed the captaincy of the Colts team. This 1993 junior was predominantly an outside back or stand off but converted to the forwards around the 1996 season. Meti again played in the reserves for the 1996 season but 1997 saw him make his first grade debut for the Warriors when he ran onto the field against the Western Reds in round 12 of the 1997 Super League season. This was to be Meti's only appearance in first grade though he did play in two World Club Challenge games for the club. Meti was not offered a contract for the 1998 season so he moved across the Tasman to the Adalaide Rams where he played just one game in the newly formed NRL. After a brief stint with the Burleigh Bears in Queensland cup Meti returned home to Auckland and played for Otahuhu in the Bartercard cup in 2002.

Meti has represented the Cook Islands on many occasions, one of which was a test match.
