Vatemo Ravouvou and Amenoni Nasilasila will miss out Canada Sevens in Vancouver this weekend.

Ravouvou sustained an ankle and knee injury in Las Vegas last week while Nasilasila is sick.

They will be replaced by Emosi Mulevoro and Sevuloni Mocenacagi.

Vodafone Fijian 7s head coach Ben Ryan tweets “Team named for the weekend. Two are out with injury and illness, Ravouvou and Nasilasila.

“Stadium looks incredible it should be a great weekend.”

Ravouvou had an outstanding lead in the 2015/16 World Sevens Series top pointscorer. The Saunaka native from Nadi has scored 242 points while South African speed merchant Seabelo Senatla is in second position with 180.

Ravouvou also leads the most conversions table with 86 while USA skipper Madison Hughes is in second place with 59.

Fiji plays Samoa in the first game today at 6:14am, Portugal at 9:50am and Kenya at 2pm.
