All Blacks winger Caleb Clarke has confirmed his Tokyo Olympics involvement, with he and Chiefs winger Etene Nanai-Seturo opting to represent New Zealand in sevens.
Both players intended to represent New Zealand at the Tokyo Olympics last year, before the Games were postponed, due to COVID-19, and they returned to Super Rugby Aotearoa.
Clarke's form for the Blues earned him an All Blacks debut in 2020, while Nanai-Seturo was part of the Chiefs side that finished runners-up to the Crusaders this year.
Their decision to bid for Olympic glory means neither will play in the inaugural Super Rugby Trans-Tasman, beginning Friday.
Clarke will also be unavailable for the All Blacks' July test series window.
