Gordon Tietjens said he would make a great 7's player but he would have to sign for rugby fulltime and start with an ITM Cup Side.
Really? you'd cast him aside because he has a thought about Olympic gold in 4 years.. ridiculous.If his mind is on Olympic Gold after only 18 months in the Nrl then lets get someone in the 7 jersey that thinks and breathes rugby league, its not like he had a stellar season here anyway.
Australia's 7's coach is Michael O'Connor, former Wallaby,Manly and NSW league player. Les Kiss is also involved in union coaching as well as Phil Blake. No doubt these guys will have an influence in enticing leaguies to union because of the olympics. Excuse me for I can not remember the source but I read they have mentioned guys like Slater,Barba and Inglis as potential 7's players so it doesn't surprise me that Johnson is being mentioned as a potential 7's player. NZRU will soon be contracting players for 7's only, this means they won't have to play 15's.
