The first five-eighth was born in Nadi, Fiji, but pledged allegiance to New Zealand in 1998 when he helped the Sevens team win gold at the 1998 Commonwealth Games. This was followed up by two more gold medals – in 2002 in Manchester, and 2006 in Melbourne.

Valence only played one cap for the Blues in 2001 as he was injured for most of the season.
