Equipment upgrade

NATIONAL 7s coach Ben Ryan will be eyeing for upgrades in the recovery equipment for the players in the next couple of seasons.

Ryan said recovery was very important.

He said they would also try to get the GPS tracking systems which he tried on Osea Kolinisau and Emosi Mulevoro in some game.

"When you are in tournaments there are specific recovery protocols you need," Ryan said.

"When I walk to the New Zealand change room I see they have $60,000 to $70,000 worth of recovery machines that they use and it gives them a huge advantage.

"For us it is ice packs and hot and cold showers. We hope to make sure that the recovery is better with nutrition, fresh air and hot and cold therapy.

"It was great to have the management board there to see first-hand to see the resources.

"I borrowed the GPS system and Osea and Emosi wore those in some games. Those are the shiny things that we don't need now but will need to have in seasons to come."
