Tietjens hoping to turn things round at home

8:22 am on 8 December 2008

The New Zealand rugby sevens coach is eyeing Wellington to craft a first win in the new season of the IRB World Series.

Yesterday Gordon Tietjens squad went one better in George by making the Cup final but couldn't prevent a determined South Africa winning its home tournament for the first time with a 12-7 victory.

New Zealand are second on the points table, 12 behind South Africa and Tietjens says its going to be a demanding season, with the World Cup adding to the pressure.
