Crowd favourites Fiji arrive tonight for this weekend's Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens without forward Jone Kuruduadua who was forced to stay at home after the Australian government refused to give him a transit visa. Kuruduadua, one of four new squad players, was denied clearance by the Australian High Commission in Suva resulting in Fijian coach Jo Savou making a last-minute change for the fifth leg of the IRB Sevens by bringing in Epeli Vuniwaqa. The 12-strong Fijian squad captained by Marika Vunibaka, had to stopover in Sydney on their way to Hong Kong. The transit stop required a visa. But unfortunately for Kuruduadua, he had overstayed his visa in Australia in 2000, and this black mark had led to him being denied a visa. 'I overstayed in Australia while I visited my wife and child there in 2000,' Kuruduadua told the Fiji Times. 'I was supposed to stay there for one year but returned home in 2002.' He added: 'It hurt when I was told that my visa through Australia was not granted. I've trained and camped with these players and there's no doubt this is a very good team. I wish them the best of luck in Hong Kong.' This is the second change foisted on Savou who last week replaced forward and captain of last year's side Semisi Naevo who pulled out due to injury and personal reasons. Savou has made wholesale changes to the squad which has played so far. Only four players - Tomasi Mawa, Emosi Vucago, Viliame Maya and Stefano Cakau, who appeared at the last two legs - have been retained. Meanwhile France, in the same pool as Hong Kong, bring a largely unchanged squad from the last two legs. French sevens coach Thierry Janeczek has made only one change, bringing in Thomas Anies for Julien Carraud. France reached the Bowl semi-finals in Wellington and San Diego and have yet to register any points in the standings. Their display will give Hong Kong hope and coach Rodney McIntosh will target France as a team to beat. The other teams in the pool are Australia and Tonga. Hong Kong, who spent three days in Singapore on a training camp, name their final 12-strong squad today. France: Joffrey Michel, Manoel Dall Igna, Florent Gibouin, Eddy Labarthe, Simon Sarthou, Sebastien Mercier, Vincent Roux, Anthony Poujol, Thomas Combezou, Loic Mazieres, Thomas Anies, Emeric Chretien.
