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)
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?
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)
