The Fiji Airways Fijian 7s men’s halfback Seremaia Tu­wai is back to his best form, says head coach Gareth Baber.

The Olympian was at his best dur­ing the New Zealand 7s Cup final by scoring two tries against USA in the 38-0 win and later was named the HSBC Player of the Final.

Baber said Tuwai’s performance soared after being taken off the re­sponsibility of leading the side.

“I look at a number of sports peo­ple internationally who now look to him (Tuwai) as probably the best (7s) player in the world,” Baber said.

During training, the Cakaudrove native has been inspiring the young players in team and a lot is expect­ed of the nippy halfback when the Fijians hunt for a back-to-back win at the Sydney 7s this weekend.

On Saturday, the Fijians take on Japan at 12.34pm, followed by the tussle against England at 6.02pm with the pool decider against Sa­moa at 10.07pm.
