Mumps blow


Sevens star Ruby Tui has been ruled out of the Commonweal­th Games officially after contractin­g mumps. Tui was hospitalis­ed with the illness last week and has not recovered. After discoverin­g Tui’s diagnosis, the women’s sevens team were placed in isolation on the Sunshine Coast but they have since joined the New Zealand contingent in the Gold Coast. Alena Saili, 19, called in to replace Tui while 17-year-old Risi Pouri-Lane is now the travelling reserve and in line for a potential internatio­nal debut. The sevens starts on Friday.
