Sevens Rep In Custody

The Fiji Police Force has detained a sen­ior member of the Fiji Airways Fijian 7s team after he was allegedly found driving under the influence of alcohol.

The player, who has been part of the team since the start of the 2018/19 HSBC World Sevens Series, was arrested by Nadi Police in Malolo yesterday, reports say.

He is currently being held at the Nadi Police Station as investigations into the alleged in­cident continue.

He is the second high-profile player to get in trouble with the authorities after forward Mesulame Kunavula was caught driving without a licence late last year.

Former national 7s playmaker, Amenoni Nasilasila, is also fronting court for allegedly raping a 24-year-old woman last year.

The Fiji Rugby Union also dropped Olym­pian and 7s playmaker Vatemo Ravovou from the Hamilton and Sydney cluster of the se­ries for disciplinary reasons.
