Waisea Nacuqu added to Fiji Sevens training squad ahead of Hong Kong and Tokyo

WAISEA Nacuqu has joined the Vodafone Fiji 7s squad for the Asian leg of the series which will start at the end of the month.

Nippy Nacuqu was not initially included in the 19-member squad named after the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s last week.

Coach Ben Ryan recalled the Tokatoka Westfield Barbarians playmaker to increase competition for selection in the squad.

National team manager Ropate Kauvesi has confirmed Nacuqu was in consideration for the Hong Kong and Japan 7s.

He also confirmed the inclusion of Peter Gus in the training camp.

Ryan earlier this week told Times Sport that Gus was a promising player and he wanted to invite him over for a few days just to have a look at what he was capable of.

Last night, the players in camp at the Uprising Resort underwent a medical test.

Ryan will name his travelling 12 and four non-travelling reserves for the Hong Kong 7s tomorrow.
