South Africa’s Blitzboks Wins At Vancouver Rugby Sevens

The Blitzboks were victorious at the Vancouver sevens on Sunday, downing African neighbours Kenya 38-5 in the final.

With the likes of New Zealand, Fiji and Australia not participating, the Blitzboks were the overwhelming favourites heading into the weekend and they did not disappoint.

They scored six tries in the final through Angelo Davids (2), Sakoyisa Makata, Chris Grobbelaar, Ronald Brown and Darren Adonis and had a commanding 24-0 lead at half-time.

“I am really proud of the boys. I really think starting this camp for this tournament after a disappointing Olympic campaign, coming here this weekend, we really tried to lick our wounds and put up a good fought and we took it a game at a time. And I am so grateful we could come up with a victory,” Siviwe Soyizwapi, South Africa Sevens player said.

This was the first all-African cup final since 2008 Adelaide, and the only one in the series history.

Attention now shifts to the season-ending Edmonton Sevens next weekend still in Canada.
