Late change: Taliauli replaces Stannard for Glasgow

by Staff Writer

Lausii Taliauli is set to make his HSBC World Series debut after being declared fit for Glasgow by ARU medical staff.

Qantas Australian Men's Sevens Head Coach Michael O'Connor said: "Lausii is a good player with a bit of size about him who is very motivated to play. I'm looking forward to seeing him in action."

The 20-year-old utility, who measures up at 192cm, represented the Gold Coast Titans in Rugby League's Toyota Cup before switching back to Rugby.

Taliauli replaces James Stannard in the squad.
