Vodafone Fiji 7s Coach Ben Ryan has included five overseas based players in his 17-member squad for the last leg of the HSBC World Sevens Series.

World Cup-winning coach Graham Henry will join the Auckland Blues as a technical advisor to help the Super 15 franchise rebuild after a disappointing season, the club announced Wednesday.
The Blues said Henry would work with new head coach John Kirwan, who replaced Pat Lam last month after the three-times champions finished 12th on the ladder with 12 losses and four wins.
Henry, who stepped down as All Blacks coach after guiding the team to victory in the 2011 World Cup, was in charge of the Blues from 1996-98, when they won two of their titles.
Kirwan said Mick Byrne and Grant Doorey, who both previously worked with him when he coached Japan, would also join the coaching team.
"We've got a lot of work ahead of us but I believe the combination of this coaching group puts the Blues in good hands for 2013," he said.
