Ame­natave Ya­con­isau


Those two stooges un­der the co­conut tree are ab­so­lutely true that ‘Ryan leaves big shoes to be filled’ (Ed­i­to­rial Car­toon by Paul Dorin; FS 24/8). I’m sure they are not star gaz­ers but mused au­di­ence who are also con­fused of what the fu­ture may bring to our sevens team.

It’s cer­tainly not an earth­quake but the stam­ped­ing of peo­ple who cel­e­brated with our gla­di­a­tors. I think the shoes are for some­one who knows Ryan’s level of per­for­mance. For me its ei­ther Chris Crack­nell, Osea Kolin­isau or Na­canieli Cawanibuka or a com­bi­na­tion of them. The other op­tion is to get Mike Fri­day over. Cer­tainly Ben has done many mighty works for Fi­jian sevens. The grat­i­tude and hu­mil­ity demon­strated by this man will be hard to find in a coach. The trust he has earned from the peo­ple of Fiji is un­equalled. He has had many peo­ple smile af­ter the de­struc­tion of Trop­i­cla Cy­clone Win­ston Go with our good wishes and bless­ings Ben.
