Na­tional 7s Coach

Fiji Sun - - Comments -

Ron­nie Chang,

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.
