FIJI Airways Fiji 7s play maker Jerry Tuwai has been nominated for the World Rugby Men’s Sevens Player of the Year 2019.

This is the third consecutive year Tuwai has been nominated for the award.

According to World Rugby, Tuwai earns a nomination for the third year running after once again carving open defenses at will with his vision and step, making the most of his diminutive frame to dart through gaps to create opportunities for himself or those around him.

The 30-year-old also featured in the HSBC Dream Team for the third year in a row.

USA duo Folau Niua and Stephen Tomasin are the other two nominees for the award.
