SBW should re­cover

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Leonec@fi­

Sonny Bill Wil­liams should be fit for this week­end’s Lon­don Sevens. New Zealand coach Gor­don Ti­et­jens said SBW had joined their list of in­jured play­ers in last week­end’s Paris tour­na­ment. “We fielded a very green team,” Ti­et­jens said. The wily coach put a pos­i­tive spin on their quar­ter-fi­nal exit in Paris. A loss to Ar­gentina pushed New Zealand into the plate, where they lost the semi-fi­nal to South Africa. New Zealand had led Ar­gentina 17-5 be­fore Kurt Baker was sin­binned and from there Ti­et­jens said things fell apart. He said it looked like they could have staged an­other mir­a­cle but Baker ap­peared to cost them. Ra­dio Sport
