Wellington Boot?

I finished yesterday’s post about the poor attendance at the Wellington 7’s with a simple question regarding an alternative venue – ‘Suva maybe?’

Interestingly Sir Gordon Tietjens – coach of Samoa 7s (and formerly the hugely successful NZ team guru) has just suggested pretty much the same – possibly after reading this blog (ha ha) –

Understandably he has included Samoa as one option.

Another article also echoed my thoughts from yesterday –

https://www.ur7s.com/news/is-there-enough-interest-in-sevens-rugby-in-new-zealand-

“The question is, is there enough interest in sevens rugby in New Zealand? That’s the one [thing] we have got to explore.”

It’s a big question for NZRU
