Fiji Sevens head coach Gareth Baber has named a strong squad for the opening leg of the 2017/2018 World Rugby Sevens Series in Dubai.
The tournament kicks off in Dubai on Friday, 1 December and Fiji will be led by Jerry Tuwai, who has also been appointed captain for the upcoming season.
This, after regular skipper Osea Kolinisau signed with the Houston Strikers, who are scheduled to play in the inaugural Major League Rugby competition in the United States.
Fiji are drawn in Pool C in Dubai with Australia, Wales and Russia while New Zealand, USA, Argentina and Samoa make up Pool D. The Blitzboks are drawn in Pool A alongside Canada, Kenya and invitational team Uganda. Pool B has a European feel to it as England meet Scotland, France and the newly promoted Spain.
Fiji 7s squad:
Apisai Domolailai, Mesulame Kunavula, Apenisa Cakaubalavu, Paula Dranisinukula, Josua Vakurinabili, Jasa Veremalua, Jerry Tuwai (c), Vatemo Ravouvou, Waisea Nacuqu, Kalione Nasoko, John Stewart, Eroni Sau, Amenoni Nasilasila
