Major League Rugby: Olympic gold medalist joins Houston Strikers

Houston Strikers have announced the signing of Oscar Kolinisau, Fiji Rugby 7s player and captain who famously lead the Fijian national team to glory at the Rio Olympics where they won Gold.

Alongside leading Fiji to Olympic glory, Kolinisau has won multiple HSBC Sevens World Series Championships over his playing career.

Kolinisau said, ‘I’m thankful to the Lord and the Strikers management for this exciting opportunity to be a part of the Houston Strikers Rugby family. I’m looking forward to the new challenge.

Fijian Olympic Coach Ben Ryan said, ‘Osea is one of the finest players I’ve ever coached and easily the best captain.


“The most capped and most successful Fijian sevens player of all time – he has become an all-time great both in Fiji and in the world of sevens.

“Hugely talented and with a massive work ethic – he is a brilliant acquisition and will be a fine player on the field and a magnificent role model off it. A finer man you will not meet.”
