The experienced Fijian centre holds the rare distinction of having represented his country at three World Cups.

He was one of the youngest players in the Fijian squad for the 2007 competition in France, where he helped them reach the quarter-final against eventual winners South Africa. 
Following this exposure to French audiences, Lovobalavu signed for then newly-promoted Top 14 club Toulon where he appeared 86 times between 2008 and 2012.

During this spell Toulon twice lifted the European Challenge Cup.

Lovobalavu then moved west to join Basque Country-based Bayonne where he spent five seasons, making 78 appearances.

A powerful-yet-elusive centre, Lovobalavu made an immediate impact upon arriving at Wasps for the 2017/18 season by being part of the squad that retained the Premiership sevens.

He went on to impress Premiership and European audiences with a number of sure-footed displays in which his defensive qualities also came to prominence.
