Fiji Airways men’s 7s skipper Kalione Nasoko has been ruled out of the Hong Kong and Singapore tournaments due to a persistent knee injury.

Coach Gareth Baber, says Nasoko has been battling with injuries and has not been able to recover in time.

Nasoko has been a revelation in the leadership role for the Fijian team this season, taking them to victories in Cape Town and Hamilton.

However, he aggravated his knee at the Canada 7s and despite close monitoring by the medical team, he failed to reach the strength required to compete at arguably the circuit’s toughest tournament.

Baber will name his travelling squad for the next two tournaments today.

The 7s team departs for Hong Kong tomorrow.

They are pooled with arch-rivals New Zealand, Australia and Kenya.

Fiji meets Kenya at 11.37pm next Friday in its opening pool match, they will then play Australia at 5.13pm Saturday before taking on New Zealand at 8.55pm.

The Hong Kong 7s will be held from the 5th to the 7th of April.
