Good World Cup Sevens draw for NZ

11:56 am on 2 March 2013

The perennial favourites New Zealand have done well in the draw for the Rugby World Cup sevens in Moscow at the end of June.

Gordon Tietjens' team should have few problems, having been drawn alongside the United States, Canada and Georgia.

But the holders Wales, shock winners of the last World Cup in 2009 when the top four teams all went out in the quarter-finals, have been drawn in a group that includes Fiji.

The New Zealand women's team has been drawn alongside Canada, the Netherlands and Tunisia.

The World Cup will give a huge boost to rugby in Russia where the game is only just starting to make waves.
