FORMER Fiji 7s player Mitieli Nacagilevu is keen to put on his national 7s jersey soon.
The Nadroga utility suffered a neck injury while representing the national selection side during the Marist 7s tournament in Suva earlier this year.
The injury robbed him of a chance to play for Fiji at the Hong Kong 7s.
He miraculously survived a vertebra dislocation to his neck spending nearly six weeks at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.
The police officer appeared for the Kuata Exiles Nakalavo club during the opening round of the Mount Saint Mary's 7s in Nadi on Friday.
The announcement of his return to the paddock for the first time since being sidelined in March drew a lot of attention from spectators.
However, Nacagilevu's return was cut short by a Fiji Rugby Union official.
Nacagilevu opted to remain tightlipped on the issue but stated that he wanted to get back into the national frame.
According Kuata Exiles team manager Sitiveni Tikoirewa, Nacagilevu played only one game before he was stopped by national coaching director Frank Boivert.
He said Boivert had raised concern about nacagilevu's recovery.
"Frank has asked Mitieli to go to Suva and have some medical tests done," Tikoirewa said.
"We know that FRU is concerned. It is a precautionary measure. Mitieli now knows that as well and we are on his side.
"As a club we want to see Mitieli get back to where he was at one stage. We will work with him to get his fitness back. Once the FRU gives the all clear, then we will get him back to play for us."
Boivert said Nacagilevu had clearance from a general practitioner.
"He is yet to get a proper medical clearance. Once a specialist doctor working with the FRU gives him the medical clearance, then he can play. Miti is suppose to get his medical report by next week."
Boivert said if the medical report came out negative, Nacagilevu would have to wait longer before playing competitive rugby again.
