Background[]

  • Gordon Tietjens coaches Rugby sevens for New Zealand (also known as NZL) Flag of New Zealand.
  • His squad has won the gold medal at four (2010 most recent) consecutive Commonwealth Games. Unlike the head coach for the All Blacks, he does not have hordes of assistants. His ability to get results and identify and nurture raw talent makes him one of the most under-recognised coaches in sport.
