A USA international, Junior Vaivai is an explosive centre with great attacking skills who has become a major strike threat for Rovers since joining the club midway through the 2018 season.

Handed a new two-year contract extension due to his impressive form, Vaivai is a powerful player with excellent footwork and good speed.

On a personal note, Vaivai is the cousin of Hollywood movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
