Sev­ens places must be earned

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Gor­don Ti­et­jens has said that to be good at sev­ens you have got to be play­ing and train­ing in the team reg­u­larly.

All Blacks and Su­per Rugby play­ers who wish to go for glory and gold at the 2016 Olympics should be in the team now do­ing the hard yards and earn­ing their places.

It is fairly ob­vi­ous the sev­ens team doesn’t need any ex­tras. The win­ning record speaks well for the cur­rent play­ers.

There is no place for the ‘‘Johnny come latelys’’ ex­pect­ing a place in the team at the ex­pense of a reg­u­lar player.
