VODAFONE Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan is eager to witness new rugby talents at the Turtle Vodafone Nacula 7s to be staged at Ratu Meli Memorial School ground in Yasawa tomorrow.

Ryan who has visited Ovalau, Rakiraki and other rural areas, is keen to witness untapped rugby talents in the islands.

"I am looking forward to this trip and hope to find new talents in the islands," he said.

"I have recruited a player from Ovalau and I will be interested to see what is in store in Nacula."

Tournament official Manasa Takala said the players were keen to showcase their talents and to convince national 7s coach Ben Ryan for a spot in the national 7s training squad.

"This is one of the big tournaments to be staged in the islands and the people are looking forward to the event," he said.

"The event will attract people from all villages in Yasawa since all villages will be represented at the competition."

Takala also thanked Ryan and 7s manager Paula Biu for accepting the invitation to develop rugby in the islands.

He also confirmed that Fiji 7s forward Pio Tuwai would accompany Ryan and Biu to Nacula.
