THE players in the Vodafone Fiji 7s training squad were released yesterday to be with their families because of the adverse weather conditions.

The 23-member squad has been camping and training at the Uprising Beach Resort in Pacific Harbour since this Tuesday.

Team manager Ropate Kauvesi said they had an early morning training session before the players were released.

"We were initially supposed to break camp on Friday but because of the weather, we released the boys today (yesterday) so they can go home and be with their families," he said.

"Family always comes first and it's important for the players to be with them during this time."

Kauvesi said the players were free to play for their respective clubs in the tournaments this weekend.

He said they would regroup after the Fiji Bitter Marist 7s when coach Ben Ryan will name his 16-member squad for Japan and Hong Kong 7s.

"The players are free to play for their clubs in the tournaments this weekend as it will give them some game time and also allow them to exercise what they have been doing during the training.

"The players will stay and train with their clubs for Marist 7s next week and will be back in camp after the naming of the 16-member squad."

Fiji is pooled with Samoa, France and USA in Pool C of the Japan 7s which will be played on March 22 and 23 followed by the Hong Kong 7s a week later.
