Gareth Baber confirmed his 12-strong line-up for the men's World Cup which kicks off this weekend, following a ten-day training camp in Utah.

Captain Jerry Tuwai is one of six Olympic gold medallists in the team, while the European based quartet of Josua Tuisova, Leone Nakarawa, Semi Kunatani and Semi Radradra all made the final cut.

Fiji, who last won the Sevens World Cup in 2005, open their tournament on Friday local time against the winner of a qualifying match between Japan and Uruguay.
