Vodadone Fiji 7’s coach Ben Ryan has been having talks with the current players in the Rugby world Cup camp for their availability for next year’s Rio Olympics.
Ryan says there are some good players overseas but he will have to see if they get released from their clubs for two tournaments in the World Sevens Series.
He adds he is pleased with the current squad as they impressed in the last season and preparations for the next season have already begun.
“The Osea Kolinisau’s and Viliame Mata’s, they are in completely different body shape now. They are five week’s into some hard weight training. Because the World Series doesn’t start till December so we got time to do that.”
Meanwhile, the New Zealand 7’s side has named Chief’s players Sonny Bill Williams and Liam Messam in their squad.
The World Sevens Series begins in December.
