2019 World Rugby 7s Player of the Year, Jerry Tuwai is back in training with the Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s team as they prepare for the first leg of the 2019/2020 HSBC 7s Series which kicks off in Dubai next month.

Tuwai who was named the 2019 7s Player of the Year earlier this month, was seen training on the side line as he tries to get into form for the first leg of the 7s series.

Fiji 7s Coach, Gareth Baber says Tuwai has a boil on his knee so he is currently doing light training.

Baber says that 14 players will be part of the first two tournaments and he is expected to name his 14 member squad on the 1st of next month.

It is expected that experience players like captain, Paula Dranisinukula, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Meli Derenalagi, Vilimoni Botitu and Tuwai to lead the team in the upcoming Dubai 7s.

Meanwhile, Fiji is pooled with France, Argentina and Japan in the Dubai 7s which begins on the 6th of next month.

Fiji’s first pool match is against Japan at 4.02am on the 6th of next month, Fiji will take on Argentina at 10.04pm and they will face France in their last match at 3.04 am on the 7th of next month.
