No local rugby unions nominated Ben Ryan for the coach of the year award.
That’s the confirmation from Fiji Rugby Union CEO John O’Connor when approached by FBC Sports for a comment on why the Olympic Gold Medal winning coach wasn’t shortlisted.
Despite missing the list, FRU has nominated Ryan for coach of the year in the more recognized Fiji Sports Awards.
Meanwhile, Ryan has won Rugby Union Writer’s Club’s special award in London.
Accoding to BBC, the award is not given out every year, only if “considered appropriate”.
The 45-year-old follows previous winners including Johnny Wilkinson and Ireland’s most-capped player, Brian O’Driscoll.
