Hayne, who won two Dally M Medals in the NRL before playing a season in the NFL with San Francisco, announced another high-profile code switch earlier this week citing a dream to play in the Olympics.

He was cleared to play by World Rugby and has now been included in the top-ranked Fijian side's 12-man squad.

Fiji's campaign kicks off against England on Saturday night (AEST), before games against Wales and Australia.

A Cup quarter-final berth in London will secure the season series title for Fiji after three first-place finishes, two second-place finishes and two third-place finishes.
