Vodafone Fijian 7's Coach Ben Ryan

Vodafone Fijian 7s head coach Ben Ryan departs tomorrow to watch the Central Coast Sevens in Australia this weekend.
With the extended squad being named for the 2015-2016 World Sevens Series, Ryan will not be limiting his final selection for the first leg in Dubai on December 4-5, to the current squad.
Four Fijian teams Daveta, Yamacia, Redrock and Tabadamu will feature in the tournament. Daveta are the defending champions.
Ryan would not only be looking for talented players but also how the Australia, New Zealand and Canada teams perform.
“I want to see how our boys perform,” Ryan said.
“It will also be good to see the Australia and New Zealand development sides as well as Canada and see how they perform.”
With training starting two weeks ago at the Uprising Beach Resort in Pacific Harbour, Ryan said he was eager to uncover new talent.
“I really hope that we unearth some more players. We will continue to pick on form, we need to be 100 per cent sure that we’ve seen every player in the country. I think that anybody who deserves to be in a white shirt this season will get into those shirts.”
Meanwhile, the Tebara Meat Vote City departs today for the Goldfields 7s in Bendigo, Melbourne which starts on Saturday.
This will be the first time a team of Votualevu, Nadi will be travelling abroad to participate in such a tournament.
Vote City media officer Rusiate Ratakele said this was a chance for players to get recognised for their skills and talent not only to overseas scouts but also to Vodafone Fijian 7s coach Ben Ryan.
“We were invited to play in this tournament. Votualevu have nurtured players such as former 7s players Samisoni Rabaka,Tomasi Rabaka and Saula Rabaka.
The Goldfields 7s tournament will see over 30 Australian and international teams compete in a range of competition from the Under-12, senior men’s and women’s teams.
