In the 2017 season, Ma’u played 24 games for Parramatta as they finished fourth on the table at the end of the season and qualified for the finals which was the club’s first appearance since the 2009 season.
Ma’u elected to switch his national allegiance Tonga in 2017. He was named in the Tonga squad for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup and played in every match of their historic charge to the semi-finals. He scored a try in their victory over arch-rivals Samoa.
After missing the start of the season through injury, Ma’u made his return for Parramatta in Round 7 against Newcastle scoring a try in a 28-14 loss. On 8 July 2019, it was announced that Ma’u had signed a 2-year deal with Hull FC in England starting in the 2020 Super League season.
At the end of the 2019 regular season, Parramatta finished in 5th place on the table and qualified for the finals. In the elimination final against Brisbane, Ma’u kicked a goal in his last home game as Parramatta won the match 58-0 at the new Western Sydney Stadium. The victory was the biggest finals win in history, eclipsing Newtown’s 55-7 win over St George in 1944. The match was also Parramatta’s biggest win over Brisbane and Brisbane’s worst ever loss since entering the competition in 1988.
