Join us with Sir Gordon as he launches his new book legacy in a Q & A session at BHS.

‘Titch,’ the pioneer of the global sevens game, is one of New Zealand’s greatest ever rugby coaches. His many accolades place him alongside the likes of Fred Allen, Brian Lochore, Graham Henry and Steve Hansen. Players and the public were dumbfounded, then, by the New Zealand Sevens team’s dire showing at the 2016 Rio Olympics, followed by Tietjens’ shock departure from the franchise after 22 years in charge. Legacy explains all. It also celebrates Tietjens’ two decades of glory, offers insights into his leadership and uncovers his thoughts in the future of the game.
