Injury worries for Fiji Sevens team ahead of IRB tournament in Scotland

10:08 am on 31 May 2007

The Fiji rugby 7s side has been hit with a major injury worry ahead of this weekend's IRB World Series tournament at Murrayfield in Edinburgh Scotland.

Forward Etonia Naba has a bad ankle injury and is likely to be ruled out of the tournament.

Coach Waisale Serevi will wait for a confirmation from the team physiotherapist before looking at his options for calling in a replacement player.

Serevi says he might have to look at one of the Fijians currently playing with the British Army side in Scotland.

He adds that the morale in camp is high and they have set their goals to win the main quarterfinal which will see Fiji retain the IRB World Series title.
