Ryan to continue with player rotation

Vodafone Fiji 7’s coach, Ben Ryan says he will continue his player rotation plan for the team when the new World Series season kicks-off in December.
The strategy to tweak his line-up in each of the nine legs last season played a key role in the team hoisting the World Series crown for only the second time in Fiji’s history.
Ryan says he will continue with this strategy in the new season with a view to selecting the best team for the Rio Olympic Games.
“I will tinker the team around a little bit to give everyone opportunities; to rest some players, I don’t want to burn anyone out before Rio (Olympic Games). We want to win the gold medal and secondary to that, I think I prefer to use the phrase ‘attack the title again this season.”
The first leg of the new World Series season will kick-off in Dubai on December 3rd and 4th.
