The South African rugby 7s team has triumphed in the world series this year, demolishing all competition, winning 5 out of 10 tournaments and playing in 8 finals out of 10. They finished 28 pts clear of the runner-up, England (Olympic champs Fiji performed sub-par overall). Hopefully, this absolutely brilliant achievement will help reinvigorate the Springboks as well. Indeed, very well done, Blitzbokke! (source)

Wow, that final pass!

The Stormers may've had 4 wins out of 4 since the start of the new SuperRugby season, but there sure are causes for concern as they head into a string of 5 clashes with NZ opponents in a row now. Improvements are needed if our lads are to remain competitive, especially in defense. On the other hand, topping the SA-1 conference seems very likely, now that the Bulls are having a very weak start. But it's a long season... (source)

First off, well done England for defending the Six Nations title! The second time is always the trickier one, and they've done it in style. (source)

Then, congrats again for England for winning the Vancouver sevens tournament - seems like this has been an excellent week for English rugby. Still, SA have extended their lead in the overall standings, now having a 23 point cushion from chasers England and 26 from the mighty Fijians. (source)

Oh, and the Stormers had another brilliant display in SuperRugby over the weekend. Nice start of the season, but the tougher schedule is just ahead: a tour of NZ, ugh! (source)

The SA rugby 7s team is totally dominating this year's world series, winning 4 out of 5 events thus far and getting one runner-up spot in addition. The closest second team, the presumed big favourites and Olympic champions Fiji are trailing 24 pts behind. They were beaten once more by our lads in a thrilling final game in Vegas in the weekend. Seems like the Blitzboks have found the perfect blend of talent and experience, solid defense and light-speed attacking, tremendous power and cunning strategy, to gain the edge over everybody else. Some remarkable results, like the amazing comeback against USA in the semi-final, are showing that this team has really developed a predator extinct currently unmatched by anyone else. And all this, in the temporary absence of their biggest star, winger Seabelo Senatla who's been called into the Cape Town Stormers team A for the SuperRugby matches. Well done. Really well done! Perhaps the Springboks could use that success as a launching ground to initiate their own much coveted revival?

New Super Rugby semi-final rules unfair

Really. Why are they complicating SuperRugby so much!?
abomvubuso: (Applause!)
The SA rugby 7s team is currently dominating the world series, winning two out of the first three editions of the season and taking another silver from the previous one. Yesterday they completed a perfect run in NZ with a devastating victory over the big favourites and Olympic champs Fiji (beating them twice over the course of the weekend, btw). Seabelo Senatla became the all-time top try scorer in the history of the world series, and the Blitzbokke displayed some amazing defending, plus their trademark light-speed attacking. They're now in the driving seat for a title this year, which is a ray of light in SA's recent rugby woes. Boke ya! (source)
