Amasio Valence (born 12 May 1979 in Nadi, Fiji) is a Rugby sevens player who switched allegiances to New Zealand after he first made his break into professional rugby in 2000. He was hailed as one of the most promising players in the discipline in recent years.
While Valence played rugby, his entire family enjoyed soccer, with his younger brother being picked for the national side of Fiji in 2002. Valence is the only New Zealander to have won three gold medals in rugby sevens at the Commonwealth Games; in 1998, 2002 and 2006, a testament to his longevity in the game. He last played for NZ in 2008.
