Meanwhile Ryan will be watching the Fiji Bitter Nawaka 7s in Nadi next week.

However the players in the national squad who are on the injury list will not be allowed to participate.

"There will be quite a few boys who will not be playing at the Nawaka 7s because of the injuries and rest times," he said.

"But chance will be given to everyone else.
