Seremaia Tuwai will not switch to 15s and will only play sevens rugby for Fiji.

When  SUNsports questioned the Buca, Cakaudrove native yesterday he replied;

“I love 7s rugby, I’m naturally made for 7s and I will not switch to 15s,” he said.

“As for playing overseas, I will not go anywhere because I love Fiji and I love representing my country.”

The 27-year old is part of Gareth Baber’s 14 men squad for the second leg of the World Sevens Series in Wellington and Sydney. It will be his third Wellington 7s and second Sydney tournament.

The scrumhalf has been rated by Baber as a quality player.

Tuwai believes the 14 men selected are capable to break the seven years winless jinx in Wellington. Fiji last won in Wellington in 2010 beating Samoa 19-14 .

“Our weakness in Wellington last year was poor communication and defence.

“We’ve been working so hard in that area with Baber who introduced new techniques and we are all looking forward to Wellington,” Tuwai said.
