Yoshihisa “Hisa” Sasagi is a Samoan rugby union player who currently plays as a prop for Otago in the ITM Cup. Sasagi was born in Samoa but came to Dunedin as a child when his father attended the University of Otago.

Despite debuting for the Razorbacks in 2012 it was not until 2015 when he finally established himself as a regular starter. His performances in helping Otago reach the championship semi-finals saw him named as a member of the Hurricanes wider training group ahead of the 2016 Super Rugby season.

Hisa has represented his home nation of Samoa four times and will be looking to make their squad for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Hisa made his debut for the Blues against the hurricanes in round 18 of the 2019 Investec Super Rugby Season, becoming Blues number 303.
