THE Vodafone Fiji 7s side will use the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s tournament as the final trial to select the national side for the Japan and Hong Kong 7s tournaments.

The Marist 7s tournament will be held on March 7 and 8 at the ANZ Stadium in Suva.

Fiji 7s team manager Ropate Kauvesi said the door was open for players outside of the training squad to join the team.

"Right now we got 23 players in the squad and Ben (Ryan) has been looking at other little tournaments, I have been looking at other tournaments around Viti Levu so all in all there are players that we have seen," he said.

"We would like to see them in Marist 7s and how they perform. It is the same like the Coral Coast 7s where we had the training squad but after the Coral Coast, we had new players coming in.

"The Marist 7s is the last qualifying place for players to put up their hand and say 'yes I want to wear that jersey'."

The 23-member squad along with latest inclusion, Emosi Vucago resumed training at Pacific Harbour yesterday.

Kauvesi said the players underwent a medical test to check their status on the injuries.

He said there were some with niggling injuries but nothing of major concern.

Kauvesi said the players would be released to play for their respective clubs in the Marist 7s.
