Fiji Men's National 7s coach Gareth Baber has confirmed that captain Jerry Tuwai has been cleared to lead the team at this weekend's Commonwealth Games 7s.

Baber has also confirmed that Waisea Nacuqu will be joining the team as cover for any injury.

Tuwai missed a training session on Tuesday because he was down with a flu.

Fiji will play Sri Lanka at 1.21pm tomorrow in their first game, they will then meet Uganda at 7.53pm tomorrow in their second pool match before facing Wales at 11.33pm in their last pool game.

There will be no quarterfinals as the top four teams will go straight to the semi‑finals at 1.43pm Sunday and the Commonwealth 7s final will kick off at 5.04pm Sunday.

Meanwhile, a 24‑year‑old Winston will take on Northern Ireland's Aidan Walsh at 10.02 tonight for a place in the gold medal match.
