The Sevens moves up to Vancouver this week after its windy stay in Las Vegas. If you had been at Newlands on Saturday, you would have realised the value of Sevens.

In the second half, Seabelo Senatla came onto the field as a substitute for Cheslin Kolbe. He was greeted by the loudest, most enthusiastic applause of the evening. Such is the status of a Sevens player in a country hungry for victory.

For the first time, a woman will be refereeing a men's Varsity Shield match – Aimee Barrett-Theron who has recently become a Test referee. In Melbourne Amy Perrett will referee a men's Under-20 match.
