Nadroga flyhalf, Alivereti Veitokani will replace Emori Waqa in the Vodafone Fiji 7s squad for the opening leg of the World Sevens Series in Dubai and Cape Town respectively.
Veitokani has been a revelation for the Stallions in provincial rugby, which caught the eye of national coach, Ben Ryan.
The pivot’s inclusion into the 14-member squad comes after Waqa was ruled out for having previously represented Sri Lanka in 7s and 15s.
Veitokani will be another playmaker option for the national side alongside Vatemo Ravouvou, Emosi Mulevoro and Osea Kolinisau.
The Fiji 7s side departs for United Arab Emirates on Thursday and the Dubai 7s will kick-off next Friday.
