YOG and Fiji 7s priority for Ryan
May 20, 2014 6:42 pm
Fiji sevens coach Ben Ryan will not be involved with any other set-up apart from the abbreviated code.
The Fiji Rugby Union says there is a lot of work between now and the 2016 Olympics in Brazil, as the national team targets the gold in Rio.
This means he will be working with the men’s sevens side and the national youth team to take part in Youth Olympics in China in August.
FRU acting chief executive Berlin Kafoa says they have spoken to Ryan on his plans for the next two years.
“His focus is entirely on sevens. He has already set a timetable form now until the Olympics. He has a long term plan and he has already planned the pre-season between July to October and his is a full time role.”
The national squad starts its pre-season training in July to start preparations for 2014/2015 World Series.
