Sir Gordon Tietjens

Former NZ Rugby Sevens Coach

Gordon Tietjens is considered to be one of the finest coaches of any sport in the world. He led New Zealand's dominating run in the world of rugby sevens throughout the 1990s and 2000s. In the fourteen years since the IRB Rugby World Series has been run, he has won twelve World Titles and four Commonwealth Games Gold Medals. He was named the New Zealand Rugby Union Coach of the year in 2010, recognised for guiding his team to a fourth consecutive Commonwealth Games gold medal. Gordon is known for his no-nonsense leadership style and uncanny ability to spot raw new talent. Whether it's the motivation he injects into his teams, his refusal to accept anything but the best from his players, or his absolute belief in his ability to pick and coach people to be the best they can be, Gordon is a remarkable man with a remarkable track record in sport and working with winning teams.
