Hayne misses out on Fiji Olympic Sevens berth

Former rugby league star and NFL player Jarryd Hayne won't be going to the Rio Olympics after being cut from Fiji's rugby sevens squad.

RNZI reports Hayne met with coach Ben Ryan on Friday and was told his time with the squad had ended.

Ryan said he could see that he was not going to have enough time remaining to make the final cut.

He said he didn't want to push Hayne so far that he caused injury and also had no intention of putting him through another huge week when his non-selection had already been decided.

However Ryan commended Hayne for his work ethic and character shown both on and off the training pitch.

He said the camp had an excellent environment and Hayne definitely added to it.
