Jarryd Hayne has been included in the Vodafone Fijian 7s team final 12 member squad for London 7s this weekend.

Coach Ben Ryan named the former San Francisco 49er after the final training run yesterday.

Hayne will play his first rugby international against England at 11.04pm.

Ryan said despite the media publicity on Hayne’s decision to play for Fiji, the team had a good round yesterday.

“Had great day yesterday, good rugby sessions and hit out against Scotland. If London could warm up a few degrees that would be appreciated,” Ryan tweets.

“Despite all the overseas media hype and attack on Hayne, it’s all smiles in camp which is a positive sign. Best day of week so far lots of smiling and laughter always a good sign.”

Ryan tweets sometimes we got to relax.

“Everybody needs to relax mada sometimes! #ilovefiji,” he tweets.

The Vodafone Fijian 7s team has had an incredible 2015/16 World Sevens Series after their three first-place finishes, two second-place finishes and two third-place finishes on the series.

On 166 points, they can wrap up the series by getting through to the Cup quarterfinal.

The Vodafone Fijian 7s team play their first match against hosts England at 11.04pm tonight,  Wales at 1.48am tomorrow and Australia at 4.54am.

Vodafone Flying Fijians head coach John McKee is grateful with Hayne’s inclusion.

“Everybody in Fiji is eagerly awaiting Jarryd playing in London,”McKee said.

“This is big capture for Fiji Rugby.  I would like to include him in the Europe Tour against England, Japan and the Barbarians in November.
