Dual Olympic Gold medallist Jerry Tuwai

Dual Olympic Gold medallist Jerry Tuwai is likely to become the Assistant Coach for the Fiji Airways Fijiana 7s side.

Fiji Rugby Union Interim Chair Peter Mazey says they are hoping that the 34-year-old will finalise his contract today to become the Assistant Coach for the Fijiana 7s.

He says they want the women’s team to win gold at the Olympic Games since the men’s side has already won gold in two consecutive Olympic Games.

Mazey says Tuwai is still employed with the Fiji Rugby Union.

Meanwhile, the Fiji men’s 7s and Fijiana 7s teams are preparing for the Cape Town 7s this weekend.

The Fiji Men’s side will take on France at 8.28pm tomorrow in their first pool match, they will then take on Spain at 11.06pm tomorrow before taking on Argentina at 4.50am Sunday in their final pool match.

The cup quarter finals will kick off at 8.34pm Sunday, the semi finals will start at 12.56am Monday and the cup final will be at 5.23am Monday.

The Fijiana 7s side will play Japan at 7.22pm tomorrow in their first pool match, they will then play Spain at 9.34pm tomorrow before playing Australia at 1.54am Sunday in their last pool match.

The Women’s cup quarter finals will start at 7pm Sunday, the semi finals will be at 12.12am Monday and the women’s cup final will kick off at 4.43am Monday.
