WATCH: Coach Ben Ryan's introduction to Fijian 7s was not the friendliest

Coach Ben Ryan played Sevens against the Fiji Spartans at the Henley 7s in 1997. He takes a quick tap and successfully dots down, though the try isn't given and he gets a Fijian elbow in the face for his trouble. Little did he know that 19 years later he would guide them to Gold - the nations first - in the inaugural Olympic Rugby Sevens competition.
