Following the Rugby Football Union's announcement on Sunday that England Sevens coach Ben Ryan is to relinquish his role, various past, present and future England internationals have taken to Twitter to praise him.
Ryan has worked with the likes of Danny Care, Ben Foden and Christian Wade as England Sevens boss and they are just a few to pay tribute to him. In total 11 players who turned out under Ryan went on to win senior Test honours and ESPNscrum has brought together just a few of the tweets penned hailing his role within the English set-up.
