Fiji sevens half back Nikola Matawalu has been dropped from the IRB world series squad for being drunk.

The squad flew out this morning for the final two events in the series in the UK and Fiji Rugby Union Operations manager Vilikesa Rinavuaka says Matawalu turned up for last night's camp drunk.

The Hong Kong sevens player of the tournament has been replaced in the squad by Sikilei Vuruna.

Rinavuaka says Matawalu will miss both the Scotland and England tournaments.
