Australian rugby player Jarome Luai often remains in the limelight with his achievements. Besides, his family life is also a much-talked-about thing. He and his dad, Martin, and mom, Ramumako Luai, share a sad story that shattered the family life for some time.
While Jarome was starting his professional career, his dad served his criminal offense in jail. Yes, you heard that right: his dad made the family downhearted due to his involvement in a drug case.
Though Jarome’s father remained away from the initial moment of his son’s career, his mom, Raumako, fully supported his sports career.
Jarome Luai is famous as the Samoan international rugby league football player who currently plays as a five-eighth for the Penrith Panthers in the NRL.
Likewise, he is a three-time premiership-winning player with the Panthers.
Not only that, Luai represented the NSW Blues in State of Origin, Samoa, at the test and 9’s level, and apart from that, the Māori All Stars at the international level.
Let’s Talk About Jarome Luai Parents: Dad Martin And Mom Raumako Luai
Jarome is the eldest child of his parents, Martin Luai and Raumako Luai. He has two younger sisters and a younger brother in the family.
As per the reports, his father, Martin, was charged with drug trafficking back in 2015. Eventually, his dad was taken to the Brisbane maximum security prison cell.
Not just that, the Luai family separated when the minute police raided their home located in Dharruk.
As Martin was in jail, he could not watch his son’s NRL debut. After hearing his eldest son’s NRL debut on the radio, the man cried every minute.
Personal Lives Of Martin & Raumako
The Australian rugby player’s father, Martin, comes from a Māori (Tainui) descendant, while his parents are from Palauli.
He seems to have spent his early days in Australia, now in his forties.
Likewise, the 6-foot-tall football player’s mom, Raumako, whose birth name is Raumanko Rai, often appears on her son’s social media accounts.
His mom is the strongest pillar of Jarome’s career and has always supported him at every step. Also, she joins her son in his tournaments and events.
However, Raumako fails to provide details on her early life and professional details on media platforms.
After her husband’s jail life, the lady handled her four kids single-handedly. Must say, she fought with every difficulty in the absence of her life partner though she gave her best to her son’s career.
Raymako and her husband, Martin, lived their early days in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, where their son, Jarome, was born.
Similarly, they supported their eldest son’s career while he played his junior rugby league for the St Marys Saints before being signed by the Penrith Panthers.
