The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team left San Francisco for Fiji yesterday without captain Seremaia Tuwai.

The plucky halfback had to stay behind after his wife fell sick and had to be taken to hospital for check-up.

A close relative of Tuwai told SUNsports that she has recovered but would be reviewed in two days’ time before being medically cleared to fly back to Fiji.

“The staff of the Fiji Embassy in the US were at the San Francisco International Airport to retrieve Tuwai’s luggage and take them back to the hotel where they are staying,” he said.

Before the Rugby World Cup Sevens, TuwaI told SUNsports that this could be his last tournament.

He made his debut for Fiji at the Gold Coast Sevens in 2014

But Tuwai could change his mind and play in the 2018-19 World Sevens Series which resumes in Dubai on November 30.  Fiji finish fourth at the RWCS,
