A fleet-footed winger with a keen eye for a gap, Timoci Nagusa is renowned as one of the deadliest finishers in world rugby.
After making his name with Tailevu and Fiji Knights, Nagusi made his Test debut for Fiji in the 2008 Pacific Rugby Cup, announcing his arrival on the international scene by scoring twice. His subsequent performances persuade the then Ulster boss Matt Williams to take him to Ireland.
Nagusa adopted quite impressively to northern hemisphere rugby and he made the move to France in 2010, linking up with Montpellier. He had a tremendous debut season in the Top 14, playing a key role in his club's remarkable run to the play-off final. He very nearly proved the match winner in the league decider against Toulouse, scoring a stunning individual try, but Montpellier ultimately came out on the wrong end of a 15-10 scoreline.
Having scored six tries in 11 appearances for Fiji, Nagusa now looks poised to light up the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
