This was confirmed by Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan. Ryan says Kunatani will be joining the national squad next Monday following his game with Toulouse in France tomorrow.

In an interview with local media, Ryan will be expecting Kunatani to be in perfect shape:

Semi Kunatani will fly over and he will be the first overseas person I would use this season. We will see what sort of shape he is in. I’ve been in contact with him and I am pretty confident that he will be in good shape.

Ryan says he will select his 14-men for Wellington and the Sydney legs of the World Rugby Sevens series on Friday.
