He says if chosen to be part of the Jamaican Rugby 7s team, he will take it with open arms.
He adds the Jamaican team has the talent and the qualities to compete against other big 7s teams, but they will need the support of a good coach and training.
The Jamaican 7s team lost all their pool matches this morning, beaten 24-5 by Great Britain, 50 points to nothing against Ireland and 60 points to nothing against Hong Kong.
