The Bua-born backline powerhouse represented Fiji in the 2002 Commonwealth Games' Rugby Sevens in Manchester and joined Leicester from New Zealand outfit Highlanders two years later. He earned 30 caps for Fiji, scoring 10 points, and also represented the Pacific Islanders combined international team that played from 2004 to 2008.

Leicester will hold a minute's applause in Sunday's Premiership match against Saracens at Welford Road for their two-time league winner.
