A corked thigh to Cameron Clark has forced a late change to the Qantas Men’s Sevens for Round 4 of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Wellington this weekend.

Clark will be replaced by Peter Lee, who made his debut for Australia in Dubai and went on to play in Port Elizabeth late last year.

Wellington will be Lee’s third cap, after the former Fijian under-20 rep catapulted into the national selection frame following a single outing with the Aussie Thunderbolts development squad in 2012.

The Qantas Men’s Sevens were named in Pool D for the Wellington Sevens, alongside Portugal, Fiji and Scotland. The Wellington Sevens, held at Westpac Stadium, runs 1-2 February.

Day 2 of the tournament will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 3HD from 11am to 8:30pm on Sunday 2 February.
