Digicel Fiji 7s rep Mitieli Nacagilevu has been ruled out from all levels of rugby for at least six weeks after sustaining a serious neck injury yesterday playing for the Digicel Barbarians against Army in the final of the Marist 7s in Suva.
After being stabilized at the ground Nacagilevu was taken to the Colonial War Memorial Hospital in Suva where it was revealed he had dislocated a vertebra in his neck.
The Nadroga fullback currently remains in hospital where doctors will be re-evaluating his position each week.
Nacagilevu had been in the running for a position in the Digicel Fiji 7s team to Hong Kong after ruling himslef out of selection for the Wellington and Las Vegas 7s last month citing fatigue.
