Plans to establish a Super Rugby franchise in Fiji to stop top players leaving the Pacific Islands are well advanced and have over £20m in backing.

I believe the impact of this plan would see Fiji win the World Cup one day, said Ben Ryan, the English coach who led his adopted country to the Olympic sevens gold medal this year.We have shown in sevens what we can do and if you just look at the impact the Fiji players are having on the tier one countries, they are their star players in New Zealand, Australia, England and France. We could make them the best club side in the world. Imagine the talent we have got in France? They would all be on the first flight back. Ben Ryan on the possibility of a Fijian Super Rugby team Ryan said in future it was vital to keep the top players in the Pacific Islands.It is not pie in the sky, he added. Pick a world XV from the players that are playing outside Fiji and Samoa in the other international teams and you would get a team that is there or thereabouts.Some of the worlds largest companies with links to the Pacific Islands are supporting the plan, giving the potential new franchise more money than any other Super Rugby team.

Wholesale Custom Twins Shirts . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers running back James Starks might not be available for Sundays game against the Chicago Bears after he was involved in a car accident on Monday.Coach Mike McCarthy said thats the reason Starks was added to the injury report this week with a concussion.McCarthy said Starks was otherwise OK but did not provide any additional details.The Green Bay Police Department confirmed that Starks was involved in a traffic incident within the city limits on Monday but said the report was not ready to be released.Starks role has been reduced the past two games, and he was replaced as a starter last week by converted receiver Ty Montgomery. Since Starks played a season-high 54 snaps against the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 28, when he carried 17 times for 41 yards, he has combined for only six carries for 4 yards in the last two games. He played only seven snaps in each game.With Eddie Lacy on iinjured reserve, it would leave the Packers with Montgomery and Christine Michael as their primary halfbacks if Starks is not cleared for Sundays game.ddddddddddddMontgomery has not carried more than nine times in a game this season but is averaging 5.2 yards per carry.Michael, who was claimed off waivers on Nov. 16, has 20 carries for 59 yards in three games since joining the Packers.When asked if Montgomery could handle a 20-carry workload, McCarthy said: Thats a question you really grow into. Hes definitely a durable player. You look at just the way hes built. The fact of the matter is he returns kickoffs too. I think that tells you what we think about his ability to run up in there. Well see how it goes this week, but, yes, I have confidence he can get to that number if he had to. ' ' '
