He outvoted Olympic Gold Medal winner, Vatemo Ravouvou and Kalione Nasoko, who shared 25 percent votes.

The 5 percent said they take deep pride in supporting other players, Tuwai, though is their man who is both mesmeric and thrilling.

Fiji lost to USA Eagles 19-7 in the cup-semifinal of the USA Sevens but won the Bronze medal by beating South Africa 26-22.
