SEVULONI Mocenacagi has been called in to replace injured Waisea Nacuqu for Fiji’s remaining matches at the HSBC Las Vegas 7s at the Sam Boyd Stadium, Las Vegas.

This was confirmed to The Fiji Times by team manager Jone Niurua.

Niurua said Mocenacagi, who was named as the 13th man this weekend, had served his four match suspension.

Nacuqu injured his collar bone following a tackle from an Australian player. While there was no yellow card issued, the player has been cited for dangerous tackle.

Fiji will play New Zealand in the first cup quarterfinal at 1.48pm.

New Zealand is without Akuila Rokolisoa who was injured last night. His injury gives way to Te Puoho Stephens to make his debut for NZ 7s in the series.

Nacuqu is expected to return to Fiji on Monday while Andrew Knewstubb is expected to join the NZ squad in Vancouver.
