Fijian flanker feared drowned

Missing Fijian flanker Aminiasi Naituyaga
Fiji sevens player Aminiasi Naituyaga is feared drowned after going missing while out swimming on Wednesday.

The flanker was attempting to cross the Sigatoka river with his Nayawa team-mates after training when he went under just south of the Melrose Bridge.

The 28-year-old - nicknamed "Steelman" for his physical style - was a member of Fiji's 1997 World Cup winning sevens team.

He only recently returned to international action, playing in the South American and Australasian legs of the IRB World Sevens Series.
