A member of the 2005 World Cup 7s winning squad, Nanuku stamped his mark as one of the predators of the 2005-06 IRB World 7s Series when he came on in the Wellington 7s 2006 final against South Africa. He sprinted the length of the pitch to score the winning try in sudden-death extra-time, one of his several match-winners in the tournament. On the domestic scene, Nanuku was one of Nadroga's heroes in 2004 after resounding victories in the Telecom Fiji Cup and Sullivan-Farebrother Trophy, and he finished the season as top try scorer in
Fiji with 12. He debuted for Fiji in 2004 against the NZ Divisional XV and was then selected into the Fiji 7s team for Dubai and South Africa and later short-listed for IRB 7s Player of the Year. Made his only Test appearance against Portugal in 2005.
