Bath winger Semesa Rokoduguni is keen to represent Great Britain at the Olympics if he does not make the cut for England's tour of Australia.
Rokoduguni's sole England cap came against New Zealand in 2014 and while he has been in and around the national squad's various training camps, he has not won a place in the matchday squad since his debut.
Eddie Jones had Rokoduguni in the England camp during the Six Nations and may yet take the Bath winger to Australia for their three-Test tour but if Rokoduguni is left out, then he wants to play in the Sevens at Rio 2016.
"Hopefully, there will be something this summer," Rokoduguni said in the Telegraph. "The only thing I can do now is keep performing every week, putting the hard graft in and hopefully the international calls will take care of themselves.
"Who doesn't want to play in the Olympics? It's Rio and everyone is putting their hands up for Rio, so if the opportunity is open and I got called up then yes, I would be available.
"But I will see what happens with England first. The only thing I can focus on is the game next week against Leicester, train well and, if I make the team, hopefully put in a decent performance."
