SBW should recover
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
