Tuwai returns for World Series

Fiji 7s veteran Jerry Tuwai will return to the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series after being named in the 14-man squad for the Hamilton and Sydney 7s.

The dual Olympic gold medalist is expected to reignite Fiji’s attack on the world stage after a slow start to the series at the end of last year.

“It is an honour to come-back, it has been awhile, but I am ready,” Tuwai said.

Tuwai said the team is focused on getting Fiji a medal  in the next leg.

“It won’t be easy but we have a target, and the boys will give their all to achieve that.”

Meanwhile Police forward Josese Batirerega will make his debut in Hamilton and Sydney.

Fiji 7s squad: Josua Vakurunabili, Jeremaia Matana, Sevuloni Mocenacagi, Tira Patterson, Josevani Drava, Filipe Sauturaga, Waisea Nacuqu, Pilipo Bukayaro, Iowane Teba, Manueli Maisamoa, Vuiviwa Naduvalo, Jerry Tuwai, Alasio Naduva, Josese Batirerega.
