Despite the changing schedule of the Tokyo Olympics. All Blacks Sevens coach Clark Laidlaw is hoping to have the services of several Super Rugby players for their Tokyo Olympics campaign.
The Tokyo Olympics games was initially scheduled to take place late July to early August of last year, some players from the Kiwi Super Rugby teams had committed to joining the sevens system.
With the Olympics approaching this year, it remains to be seen as to whether the same players will be made available to the Sevens.
Caleb Clarke (Blues) , Etene Nanai-Seturo (Chiefs), Salesi Rayasi (Hurricanes) and Scott Gregory (Highlanders) were all expected to miss the Super Rugby season to spend time in camp with the Sevens team to build towards the Games.
