The BlitzBokke have a favourable draw for the Nelson Mandela Bay SA Sevens, the third round of the IRB Sevens World Series in Port Elizabeth next weekend.

The draw for the South African leg of the series was conducted just before the Cup Final of the Dubai Sevens, won by Fiji.  

After their blistering Cup win at the second round of the Series in Dubai, Fiji are top seeds in Port Elizabeth and head Pool A, while runners-up South Africa, third-placed New Zealand and the fourth semifinalists England head the remaining pools.

After their win in Dubai, Fiji head Pool A and face matches against Scotland, Australia and France on Day One in South Africa.

The Dubai runners-up, Port Elizabeth hosts South Africa, will once again take on fellow Africans Kenya and their former coach Paul Treu, as well as Canada and Spain in Pool B.

For the South African event, defending champions New Zealand head Pool C and start with matches against Wales, Portugal and USA.

England head up Pool D and face Argentina, Samoa and the only non-core side in the draw, African regional qualifiers, Zimbabwe.

After the first two rounds in Australia and Dubai, defending champions New Zealand lead with 39 series points from second-placed Fiji (35), South Africa (34) and England (32).

SA Sevens pools:

Pool A:
Fiji, Scotland, Australia and France
Pool B: South Africa, Kenya, Canada and Spain
Pool C: New Zealand, Wales, Portugal and USA
