By JOSEPHINE NAVULA

Ilai Tinai has been ruled out of the Japan 7s tournament after the spear tackle he made on a Wales player during the Hong Kong 7s final.

Head Coach Alivereti Dere confirmed that the IRB has suspended the playmaker for a week which will rule him out of the tournament in Japan.

Meanwhile, Fiji will play its three pool matches of the Japan 7s on Saturday.
