A talented stand off, Jeremiah played his junior football for the Eastern Tornadoes and his abilities were noticed first when playing in the Bartercard cup. Jeremiah signed with the Warriors and made his debut for the club in 2002 against the Parramatta Eels in round 19. Jeremiah was unable to cement a contract with the Warriors beyond the 2002 season and moved onto the Wests Tigers for the 2003 season but was unable to break into the NRL side and was released for the 2004 season. 2004 found Jeremiah at the Eels. Again however he was able to force his way into the NRL side and was on the look out for another club for 2005. Melbourne was the next stop on Jeremiahs career path but again was unable to break into the senior side and was without a professional club for 2006. Pai did however play for the NZ Maori side that played a series against the Cook Islands in 2006.

Educated at Penrose high school (now known as One Tree Hill college) played his junior league for the Papatoetoe Panthers and the Otahuhu Leopards.  In 2001 the NZ Warriors noticed his raw destructive abilities and signed him to a 3 year deal which saw him debut for the club at NRL level against the Northern Eagles in round 15 2001. Iafeta soon became a fan favourite at Ericsson stadium (now Mt Smart stdium), effectionately known as Mr Effective or Feka to fans and team mates alike. A former scaffolder, Iafeta was offered a big money offer from world powerhouse Wigan and in june of 2005 put pen to paper. Feka would go on to play 145 times for Wigan but in 2011 signed to play for the Salford City Reds. 2007 saw controversy swirl around Iafeta when he was charged with assault of a bus driver, James Campbell, and appeared in court on those charges, pleading not guilty. Iafeta was found guilty and given a non custodial sentence of compulsory unpaid work and ordered to pay costs + compensation to the victim. After playing three tests for the kiwis Iafeta was given RLIF permission to swap nations and play tests for Samoa in 2007.

It was at the tender age of 16 that Scott made his NSWRL debut for the Penrith Panthers in 1994 and also touring with the junior Kangaroos in Fiji before going on to play in 34 first grade games for the Panthers before leaving the Panthers in 1996 for the North Sydney Bears amid the Super League war of the time. He was a regular in the Bears side over the next 2 seasons making 55 appearances for them. However when the North Sydney Bears and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles merged at the end of 1999 to form the Northern Eagles Scott found himself squeezed out of the new playing roster. Scott joined the Warriors for the 2000 season and made 14 appearances for the club but his time in Auckland was short lived and he moved back to Sydney in 2001 and again linked up with the North Sydney Bears in the NSWRL premiership and ultimately with the Northern Eagles club playing in 5 games for them over the coarse of the next two seasons before retiring at the end of the 2002 season. After retiring Scott got himself involved with horse training and coaching rugby league in the lower grades.
