In 1999 he moved to Gloucester Rugby, joining his cousin Terry Fanolua. He remained there for five years, winning the 2002 Zurich Championship Final (the year before winning the play-offs constituted winning the English title) in which Gloucester defeated Bristol Rugby, and the Powergen Cup in 2003, before leaving to rejoin Bedford as a coach in 2004.

During his career, Paramore won 29 caps for the Samoa national rugby union team, taking part in three World Cup campaigns.
