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.
