Pay system changes

VODAFONE Fiji 7s coach Ben Ryan has asked the sponsors to change the bonus structure of the team.

Vodafone Fiji paid bonus to the national team for at least making the quarter-finals.

Ryan said now the team would only receive bonus if it won the plate final.

"Quarter-final is not good enough. We need to get to top four and top five so the bonus will be based on that," Ryan said.

"Before Vodafone gave bonuses upon reaching the quarter-finals which I kindly asked to change. Now the bonus will be paid on winning the plate and upwards."

The Fiji Rugby Union also announced the contracts of the players which would be on three tiers.

The bottom tier will be paid $15,000, the middle tier will receive $17,500 while the players in the top tier will get $20,000.

Ryan also said the players would be paid $1000 appearance fee plus the allowance during tournaments.

He said there would be funds available for "discretionary" purposes and players would be continuously rewarded for their commitment.

Meanwhile, Ryan said the employed players who would be contracted would be asked to take leave without pay from their employers.

He said players could play for their respective clubs but would have to abide by the conditions set by the Fiji Rugby Union.
