Fiji Rugby Football Union Trust Board Interim Chair, Peter Mazey has made it clear that there were no threats made to Fiji Airways Men’s National 7s Coach Ben Gollings about his contract if he does not win any of the tournaments in the first leg of the 2023-2024 HSBC SVNS Series which is the Dubai 7s and the Cape Town 7s.
When asked by fijivillage News about reports that Gollings contract will be under review if he does not win any of the tournaments, Mazey says he just told Gollings that he wants wins and did not threaten him.
He says he just expects the team to win gold at the Olympic Games next year.
Mazey says they will do a judgement call on the performance of the team after the Cape Town 7s this weekend.
He adds the players have informed him that they have had enough of rumours being circulated by the media and also on social media and it has been hurting them a lot.
