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?
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.
