Fiji 7s rugby coach Alivereti Dere has named seven backs and five forwards for the final leg of the IRB World Sevens Series.
The major surprise is the inclusion of debutant, Niko Verekauta.
The former Fiji sprinter and 400-meter Pacific Games athlete has been a part of the squad for two legs but fell short of a final call up.
He has thanked his Wardens rugby club and promises to do his best on the international scene.
Returning to the fold is tall timber, Isake Katonibau while skipper Setefano Cakau will lead seasoned reps.
The backline included Joeli Lutumailagi, Metuisela Talebula, Joji Ragamate, Ilai Tinani, Nikola Matawalu while the forwards are Levani Botia, Waisea Nayacalevu, Timoci Vakadranu and Jimilai Naikadawa.
