The Fiji Rugby Union announced on Monday that 2005 Sevens World Cup winner Viliame Satala and two-time Olympian and gold medal winner Jerry Tuwai will be part of a new coaching set-up, with Englishman Ben Gollings.
Satala, known as 'The Stretcher' during his playing days because of his bone-crunching tackles will focus on the forwards, skills and support with talent identification and mentoring of players.
While Tuwai will take on the role of player/coach to develop his coaching.
Head coach Gollings said Satala brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that he can share with the new generation of players.
Gollings said Tuwai is interested in pursuing a coaching career and "this is a good time to support his development and transition."
According to the FRU, this will be the first time that a foreign head coach of the national sevens team has engaged local coaches as part of his coaching team.
