Head coach Ben Ryan says Fiji are the team to beat at the Rio Olympics ahead of the next round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Singapore. After last weeks triumph in Hong Kong his side are targeting back-to-back round victories and want to arrive at the Rio Olympics in pole position.We did want to go to the Olympic Games as number one seeds... and were happy with that favourites tag, said Ryan. I know the history of Olympic team sports often means that the number one team in the world going into that Olympic sport often doesnt win but we still think were better off being number one than number two.Well put it out there that we will be the team to beat. Anyone that beats us will probably win the gold medal.Ryan said Fiji also took heart from their record in three-day tournaments, the format that will be played in Rio, after winning four out of four in the past two years.If another team suddenly smashes the next three tournaments then that might change things, Ryan said.But weve had four three-day tournaments, the same as Rio, in the last two years and Fiji has won every single one of them.Confidence is high but we have to make sure we dont get over-confident... Im keeping the pressure on the boys this week. Savenaca Rawaca scoring one of his 5 tries during last weeks HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Hong Kong For Ben Ryan and his men an Olympic gold medal would have added significance given this years cyclone disaster. Fiji is still recovering from Cyclone Winston which left 44 dead, 60,000 homeless and crippled the countrys infrastructure.Weve had players that have lost their houses, families that have lost their businesses. Its been a tough time, we now have food shortages and the cost of food has doubled, he said.Its tough and the boys will go back and do their bit and give their winnings to their families, he added.An Olympic win will go beyond rugby. That will boost all our younger athletes to think that if those 12 players from their villages can go to the Olympic Games, then why cant they do it in other sports?Watch the HSBC World Sevens Series as the teams head to Singapore, live on Sky Sports 4 from 2.50am this Saturday.

Founding members of the Genie Army, a group of Eugenie Bouchard supporters who cheered for the rising tennis star during the Australian Open in January, will be in the city for the Rogers Cup, beginning this weekend. The fan club is made up of about a dozen people and six of them are making the long journey to Canada for the tournament. "We thought it would be a great chance to support Genie in her hometown and have the home crowd cheer along with us," said Stephen Ganavas, a 17-year-old student living in Melbourne. Dressed in red and white and waving a banner with her name, the Genie Army emerged as Bouchards unofficial cheering section during an impressive run in January. She ended up losing to the eventual winner, Li Na, in the semifinal. The Australian devotees, mostly men in their early 20s, readily admit they have no ties to Canada and no connection with Bouchard. They acknowledge the tall blonds looks may have played a part in their decision to support her. Ganavas said he and his friends also wanted to back an "up-and-comer" in the tournament and Bouchard fit the bill to a T after showing her potential at Wimbledon in 2013. "Genie is great because she is so genuine and down-to-earth," he said in an email exchange. "For example, after she had just lost at the Australian Open to Li Na, sshe came out onto the grounds and just had a chat with us when she could have been relaxing and thinking about the match she had just lost.dddddddddddd" Its been a landmark year for Bouchard. After her success in Australia, the 20-year-old made it all the way to the semis in the French Open in June before playing in the Wimbledon final on July 5. She enters the Rogers Cup at No. 7 in the world rankings. In the process, Bouchard, who hails from the Montreal-area community of Westmount, has gained a whole new legion of fans. Other Genie Army clubs have sprouted up in Montreal, Quebec City and Trois-Rivieres. The hashtag .GenieArmy was a trending topic on Twitter during Wimbledon. And a special Genie Army ticket package to watch Bouchard at the Rogers Cup is already sold out. Meanwhile, the original fan club from Australia has also gained a following of its own. A Genie Army website is under construction and the group is planning to sell T-shirts inspired by those they wore at the Australian Open. One reads, "Eat, Sleep, Genie, Repeat." And, after having their faces splashed across newspapers, websites and highlight reels during the Australian Open, members of the Genie Army will become a sort of cause celebre in Montreal. The group will attend an official photo this Saturday and, according to a news release, fans will "have the chance to take their photo with the now famous group."
