Rabeni: Ryan is right man for job

THE training environment that Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan has created in the national camp is helping him produce good results.

That's the view of former Fiji sevens rep Seru Rabeni.

The former Flying Fijian outside centre said Ryan's professionalism in selecting the best players is reaping its reward.

"From the outset it's been encouraging," Rabeni said.

"Ben is very professional. He is the right man to do the job. Knowing him from England and after meeting him a few times when I was there, he is very professional.

"Looking at the results, it speaks volumes and also the players here have spoken highly of him."

The former Leicester Tigers centre said most players looked forward to each training camp because they felt comfortable with the environment.

He said creating a good environment is like having a family.

"When the environment is toxic we are not going to be able to perform to our best. If the environment is good you're not going to be asked to do something, you'll just want to do it for the sake of your family.

"The environment that Ben has created in camp is why he is producing the results, we can see it from the outset.

"It is something we lack, we have the talent but I think we lack that professionalism, diet, recovery, the environment.

"Most players speak highly of the environment because they know they're training for a purpose, they know what they are doing during the week, during the day.

"It's a good thing for us moving forward in sevens."
