Stormers wing Sireli Naqelevuki has joined the Fijian Sevens team for the International Rugby Board Series in George this weekend.
Rugby365 reports that Naqelevuki has experienced a horror season with the Cape side after he single-handedly cost Western Province a place in the Currie Cup final in October via a high tackle.
Fiji beat South Africa 17-5 in the quarterfinals last weekend in Dubai but ultimately lost to eventual champions New Zealand, in the Cup final.
However, two Fijian players, Jerry Burotu and Niumaia Cakacaka, suffered injures during the tournament in Dubai which opened the door for Naqelevuki Instead of flying players over from Fiji, who would have only arrived shortly before the tournament, the Fijians opted to call on Naqelevuki to make the short trip to Outeniqua Park.
Fiji will face Australia, Portugal and Russia in Group B in George.Tweet
