Osea Kolinisau has many achievements that can list down, but to be honest, we were there with him when he was making history. Kolisau never disappointed us whether it’s his fancy hairstyles or his ability to score with his sheer pace.
He led Fiji to our first-ever Olympic medal in Rio in 2016 as well as back to back World Sevens Series titles in 2015 and 2016.
Kolinisau made his international sevens debut in 2008 and captained Fiji from 2013 until 2017, appearing in a record 62 events for Fiji on the World Series.
You have been a great leader during your time.

One of his best performances came in the final of the Hong Kong Sevens in 2013, where he stepped off the bench to score a hat-trick of tries and help Fiji secure a famous comeback win against Wales.
Osea Kolinisau is the second Fijian to be inducted into the World Rugby Hall of Fame, joining “The King of Sevens” Waisale Serevi, who was recognised in 2013 and is among six inductees in the class of 2021.
Osea Kolinisau retired from top-level sevens in 2017 before playing stints with the Houston Sabercats and Old Glory DC in the United States.
Once again Congratulation Captain Courageous and big Vinaka vakalevu for your service.
