THE man who unearthed talents like former national sevens stars Waisea Nayacalevu and his younger brother Avenisi Vasuinubu is aiming to continue with the trend.
Rene Munch, coach of the Uprising 7s side, said he had more local talent that could become the next big thing if they were given proper guidance.
Munch, who is also the owner of the Uprising Beach Resort, came up with the idea to host the Uprising Fiji International 7s tournament.
In the tournament last weekend, his side created the biggest upset when they beat the New Zealand Emerging 7s side in pool play.
Uprising was eliminated in the bowl competition but Munch said his players really impressed in the tournament.
He said he was trying to negotiate overseas contracts for some of his local players.
"I am trying to secure contracts for two players in Melbourne, Australia and two in France," Munch said.
"I cant reveal their names yet because the contracts are still in negotiation and have not been confirmed yet," he said.
"But for a team that only plays in one tournament in a year, we have done extremely well and our local players really stepped up to the challenge despite only playing rugby in the village or on the beach."
Munch is now based overseas but he has advised his local players to continue training and playing.
"I would advise them not to give up on their dreams on becoming star players because they are still young and have a lot of time on their hand.
"I would just like for them to continue training and playing and one day they will become successful," he said.
