Ryan will name his final 13 member squad this Friday.

Despite the tough competition from his teammates the Saunaka, Nadi lad is optimistic of his chances and strongly believes of getting a spot in Rio.

RAVOUVOU: “Training has been really intense for the past weeks and as well the competition of getting a spot for Rio.”

He said Ryan’s decision in naming the squad will be a crucial one for them and therefore is ready for the outcome.

RAVOUVOU: “I will just wait for whatever Ben will offer I will take it. The big challenge that is there for me is those sevens players that are vying for the same spot as I. I am  just hoping for a spot to take me to Rio, everything that will happen should be of God’s will and I am ready to accept anything that comes my way be it positive or negative I am ready for all that.

Meanwhile, Ben Ryan has been left under pressure trying to name his best soldiers for Rio.

The President of the Fiji Rugby Union (FRU) and Prime Minster Voreqe Bainimarama is expected to announce on Saturday the Fiji 7s teams that will represent Fiji at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
