Ben Ryan: Pacific Islands becoming Rugby’s ‘Wild West’ says ex-Fiji sevens coach

Having taken Fiji to Olympic gold and thus being awarded a plot of land and a tribal name, you can imagine that Ben Ryan has some love for the Pacific Islands.

In this article on the BBC, Ryan argues on behalf of the Island nations- that the plundering of players, often at a young age, needs to stop. Will World Rugby step in and take action to protect these great Rugby Nations?

You can read the full article on the BBC, here.

Also worth a read is Sean Longstaff, ex-Scotland International turned rugby agent’s ‘fears and revelations’ of being a Rugby Agent and what many agents are doing in the Pacific Nations. That article is also on the BBC, linked here.
