About Rama Chand
Having moved to New Zealand from Fiji at a young age, Rama took up the game in South Auckland and ended up playing representative rugby for his province Counties Manukau through various age grades. He then travelled the globe playing in multiple locations before finishing up his playing days in The Netherlands where he also started to transition into coaching.
After his move to Australia in 2015, he began working within the Queensland Reds development and community team and progressed to being the Head of Game Development for one of Australia’s finest super rugby franchises.
Currently he is Rugby Australia’s Coach, Training and Education Advisor.
Prior to that he was the National Pathway Manager. In his role he has had the opportunity to present, lead and facilitate at numerous forums, workshops and symposiums around coach and player development as well as build workforces to deliver formal coach accreditations.
He is passionate about coaching and continual learning and this has allowed him to assist coaches in their own development in Australia and the Pacific particularly in Fiji of late through his work with Oceania Rugby. He also has thorough experience coaching within the rugby pathways in Australia for both XVs and 7s.
