Hayne could still be included in Fiji's London Sevens squad

Fiji coach Ben Ryan has dismissed reports Jarryd Hayne could miss out on the Rio Olympics.

Ryan made this remarks after reports suggested he had been left out of the squad for this weekend’s London Sevens.

After quitting NFL franchise the San Francisco 49ers this week, the former NRL star announced his intention to qualify for the Olympics with the rugby sevens’ gold-medal favourites.

Reports stated that the crosscode star has missed out on the 12-man squad named by coach Ben Ryan. However Ryan, the former England coach, insisted that a decision has yet to be made.

“Another ill informed story in Australian press. Name side on Friday - only got back into training today,” he tweeted.
