Hayne: Serevi said yes
“It’s tough, it’s very tough but I guess that’s sport.
“There’s always going to be players that will miss out, but I think for these guys that have come so far throughout all of the tournaments across the world trying to prove themselves to be able to be picked for Rio. No doubt it’s going to be very disappointing for one of those players.” TUQIRI: HAYNE CAN Former dual international Lote Tuqiri said Hayne will have to drastically work on his aerobic capacity, but backed the former Australian star to surprise the rugby sevens community.
“It’s going to be incredibly tough for him,” Tuqiri told Fox Sports.
“I think just that aerobic capacity you’ve just got to work really, really hard in training. “He’s probably got three months of really hard training in front of him now. I know in the past he probably ran his own race at Parramatta in the stuff he did off the field in the training and everything else. “Ben Ryan, who is the Fijian coach at the moment, is a really hard task maker and he’s up against it, mate. They’re the best team in the world at the moment. “Finished No 1 on the (World Series) circuit last year Fiji did, and there’s already about 10 to 15 blokes knocking down that door back home in Fiji just to try to get into that team.
“He hasn’t left himself a lot of time, but if there’s any guy who’s going to make it — everyone wrote him off with the NFL and everything else — so if there’s any guy that will make it, it will be Jarryd Hayne.”
Waisale Serevi gave Jarryd Hayne the green light
