Tuwai nominated for World 7s Player award

Fiji Airways Men’s 7s Captain Jerry Tuwai has been shortlisted for the 2018 World Rugby 7s Player of the Year award.

The 29-year-old led Fiji to five title wins in the 2017/18 World Sevens Series, including four in a row from Vancouver to London.

He was also named in the Dream Team of the Season.

Tuwai also led Fiji in the Commonwealth Games and the World Cup.

Other nominees for the top award are last year’s winner- Perry Baker of the United States of America and Australia’s Ben O’Donnell.

So far, only two Fijian players have won the prestigious award. Tomasi Cama Junior won it while representing New Zealand and Samisoni Viriviri was the best from the Fijian national team to win it in 2014.

The winner will be announced in Monte Carlo on November 25.
