BioEdit

Nagusa played for Tailevu in the Colonial Cup competition. He helped Tailevu win the Sullivan Farebrother Trophy in 2007 and because of his performance, he was included into the Tailevu Knights squad for the 2008 team. He was also named Man of Match in two of the Knights Colonial Cup matches after which he was chosen into the Fiji Warriors team for the Pacific Rugby Cup and his performance guaranteed him a spot in the Fiji team for the 2008 IRB Pacific Nations Cup where he made his debut against Samoa on the right wing working admirably well alongside the experienced centre, Sireli Naqelevuki and renowned winger, Vilimoni Delasau to score two tries. His performance caught the attention of Ulster Rugby Head Coach, Matt Williams, who formerly coached the NSW Waratahs, and Leinster were in search of a new wing.

In 2010, he left Ulster and joined French Top 14 side, Montpelier for their 2010–2011 season

Nagusa scored a brilliant individual try for Montpelier against Stade Toulousain in the French Top 14 final for the 2010–2011 season. In February 2015, he signed a contract extension to the club till 2018.[1]

He ended the 2015–2016 as the top try scorer with 15 tries. He took a longer break after the season and refused to return to the club.
