The top try-scorer at the 2016 Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast 7s tournament in Sigatoka will be presented with the Jonah Lomu Medal.
The legendary All Blacks winger, who was inducted into the Sigatoka Town Rugby Walk of Fame in 2012, passed away last month in Auckland, New Zealand, aged 40.
Organizers say they want to honor Lomu for his services to the game of rugby around the world.
The Sigatoka Town Rugby Walk of Fame so far includes several high-profile names in the sport such as Waisale Serevi, David Campese, Ben Gollings, Viliame Satala and Karl Te Nana.
Former Australian dual international and Fiji Bati rep, Lote Tuqiri will unveil his plaque on the Walk of Fame during the 2016 Coral Coast 7s, which will be held at the refurbished Lawaqa Park on January 14th-16th.
15 teams are confirmed to participate in the tournament with the final spot to be awarded to the winner of the Westfield 7s, which will be held this Saturday at Prince Charles Park in Nadi.
