National 7s Coach
Nadi Fiji’s most successful 7s coach Ben Ryan, a.k.a. Ratu Peni Raini, a.k.a. Tu Rai’s feat in attaining back-to-back World Rugby-HSBC sevens series and Olympic Gold has made it obvious that it is not impossible. Though highly improbable, it is almost impossibly possible. His successor needs to work his first threemonths without pay; meet team’s travelling expenses to or from training ground using personal funds, when required, achieve three back-to-back series championships plus that elusive Olympic Gold Medal. This is the truly huge call. Rugby-crazy island nation, Fiji, will forever be indebted to red-headed English “Baraca” (brother). Tu Rai.
