The pressure is on the Fijian National 7s coach Ben Ryan to select his 12- member team to the Rio Olympics next month.

Ryan said the moment he arrived three years ago, the pressure was always there to put together a successful team.

“I put pressure on myself. That probably outweighs any pressure anybody else throws at me,” Ryan said.

“We got some very good players. I’m jumping around in my head, throwing a few balls around. I’m making sure that I’m continuously looking at form and not faces and the boys understand that.

“We brought in world-class overseas players here and they still have to perform. I’ve done this all the time and I will go on my gut instinct on the best 12 and 13th guy that will be a replacement.

“I don’t feel that from anyone else I feel that from myself. We’ll have a really good squad, we will have disappointed people, deliriously happy people.

“Since the pools have been announced we have had a little look at the oppositions we are playing against and the route through and the strengths and weaknesses, it’s exciting.”
