Sione Vaiomounga (born 8 April 1989) is a Tongan rugby union footballer. He currently plays back-row in which position he represented Tonga at the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.[1] Sione made his debut for the national side on 28 November 2009, where he opened his scoring count with a try against Portugal.[2] Sione played for Toloa Old Boys, and he was the only player to be picked in Tonga's 30-man squad for the 2011 World Cup who played in Tonga's domestic division.[3]

In 2011, Sione represented Tonga in the Hong Kong Sevens, where he demonstrated great footwork and powerful running, putting him in a great position building up to the 2011 Rugby World Cup, starting against Canada and Japan in the group stages of the competition - despite Tonga's well deserved 19-14 victory against France they were unsuccessful in qualifying for a quarter-final position[4]

In November 2011, after an impressive World Cup campaign, Sione Vaio'mounga joined National Division 3 side Oxford Harlequins, where he was a major force, and arguably saved the Oxford based club from certain relegation, with his bruising running and physical tackling.[5]
