Vodafone Fijians 7s player Nemani Nagusa has been replaced Viliame Mata for the Wellington-Sydney leg of the World Sevens Series due to injury.

Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan, said that during the team medical checks, the injury was detected and the decision was made for Nagusa to be rested.

“It is very unfortunate for the team and for Nagusa but I would prefer for him to recover properly for the next leg,”Ryan said.

“Viliame Mata, who is just as fit, will replace Nagusa and will fly out to join the team later this week.”

The team flew out yesterday afternoon.

They will face Japan at 11.36am, Wakes 2.38pm and Argentina at 5.46pm on Saturday.
