Trevor Williams, bad decision and individual play hurt FijiTrevor Williams, bad decision and individual play hurt FijiA FORMER sevens coach says individual plays and decisions continues to fail the Fiji Airways men’s 7s team.

Trevor Williams said Fiji seems to have lost its niche.

“Fiji should have won against Argentina and New Zealand but their transition plays and decisions cost the team dearly,” said former Rabbitohs rugby club coach during a Sportsone interview.

“I understand that a coach is ultimately responsible for the team and results, but let’s be honest, the players are the ones who are on the field, with the number of losses the players are doing disservice to the nation that built a reputation in the sport."

Williams said all coaches’ best prepare and strategize teams to their abilities and it’s the players who are there to execute the game plan.

“When a team loses the coach gets thrown under the bus but when the team wins, it always the players who get all the credit.

“With 18 tournament loss,Ben Gollings is not scoring good in the eyes of the fans, former players and administrators.”

Former coaches called out

Ben Ryan and Gareth Baber were in similar situations and were called out when the team was under-performing, said Williams, an ardent fan of Fiji sevens rugby.

“Baber and Ryan were criticized, there was calls for their firing, both won Fiji back -to- back Olympic gold.

“Instead of just riding Ben Gollings why don’t the players share the blame."

Step up or step down

National team players should consider themselves lucky to represent, they must give it all, failure to, William said they should make room for those that can get the job done.

“Bad decisions and individual play hurt results."
