Fiji Sun - - Sport - STELLA MORESIO

With all in­jured play­ers cleared to re­sume train­ing, an­other is­sue has popped up for the Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s team - the iso­lat­ing of a few play­ers due to con­junc­tivi­tis. This comes as the team re­turned to camp yes­ter­day for their last phase of train­ing be­fore they leave for Hong Kong. Voda­fone Fi­jian 7s team coach, Ben Ryan said the play­ers from Suva were the ones who have con­tracted the virus but they should be fine for Hong Kong. “Yes a num­ber of play­ers have con­junc­tivi­tis from the men’s and women’s side, we have seven in to­tal,” he said. “We are iso­lat­ing them, giv­ing the ap­pro­pri­ate medicine and mak­ing sure we min­imise con­tact with other play­ers but all play­ers should be fine for Hong Kong (men) and At­lanta (women).” Ryan is ex­pected to name his 14-mem­ber squad on Thurs­day. Mean­while, the Telecom Fi­jiana side have also re­turned to camp as they pre­pare to leave for the United States on Sun­day. The At­lanta 7s will be played next week­end and the Fi­jiana are pooled with Aus­tralia, Eng­land and Columbia.
