Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s Player Jerry Tuwai has overcome a hamstring injury that hampered his Singapore tournament and has been named for the London 7s next weekend.

Head Coach Gareth Baber says the boys are prepared and ready for the battle ahead as they look to scoop the series title.

Filimoni Botitu and Aminiasi Tuimaba will continue their strong season for Fiji and the return of key playmaker Waisea Nacuqu who has recovered from a collar‑bone fracture sustained in Las Vegas is expected to boost their performance in the remaining tournaments of the series.

Baber has also included Paula Dranisinukula, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Josua Vakurinabili, Ratu Meli Derenelagi, Livai Ikanikoda, Napolioni Ratu, Asaeli Tuivoka, Alasio Naduva and Isoa Tabu.

Fiji sits second on the HSBC World Sevens Series standings with 142 points, three points behind current leaders USA.

The team leaves for the United Kingdom tomorrow and Baber is expected to join them in London on Friday.

Fiji is pooled with Kenya, France and Samoa for the London 7s which will be played from the 25th to the 27th of this month.
