THE Fiji Rugby Union is waiting on national sevens coach Ben Ryan to confirm his squad for the Youth Olympic Games that will be held at Nanjing in China in August.

Ryan, who led the Vodafone Fiji 7s side to a third place finish in the HSBC Sevens World Series, did not return with the team on Wednesday.

The Fiji 7s team arrived back into the country minus the Englishman who has stayed back in London for medical reasons.

"Staying over," he tweeted after the London 7s tournament ended on Monday morning (Fiji time).

"Have a small operation for old rugby injury to have."

FRU acting chief executive Dr Berlin Kafoa said Ryan was expected to name the squad for the Youth Olympic Games soon.

"Ben is working out on the U18 for this Youth Olympics event," he said.

"He has his extended list that they are finalising and from that extended list, he will select his squad."
