Fiji's Olympic gold medal winning sevens captain is poised to leave the team after signing a multi-year contract with the US-based Houston Strikers

31 year old Osea Kolinisau made his debut for the Fiji sevens team in 2008 and led them through to back to back World Series titles in 2015 and 2016 and sevens gold at last year's Rio Games.

Houston head coach Justin Fitzpatrick told Koro Vaka'uta how the deal came about.
