Rawaca is still expected to rejoin the squad in preparation for the Olympic Games once the team returns from the last two tournaments of the world series.

Fiji are in a pool with Samoa, Scotland and Wales during next week's Paris Sevens.

The final series tournament before the Olympics will be held in London a week after Paris.

Fiji currently sits at the top of the series standings on 147 points with South Africa in second with 139 points and New Zealand third on 135.
