Tietjens has confidence for new year

6:55 pm on 6 April 2009

The New Zealand rugby sevens coach Gordon Tietjens is confident his side will come back strong next season after relinquishing their IRB crown.

The New Zealanders again suffered a quarter-final loss in the latest round in Adelaide over the weekend and they're now languishing in 5th place, 40 points behind series leader South Africa with just 2 rounds remaining.

Tietjens was hampered by injuries this year but he has confidence in some of the new players he's introduced this season....



OUT:...scene perhaps.

DUR:...13 secs

The next round is in Twickenham next month.
