An exciting Sevens World Cup awaits
EXCLUSIVE: The BlitzBoks have never won the Sevens World Cup and this year’s edition of the competition brings a unique format.
In the six previous editions of the competition, South Africa has reached the semifinals on just one occasion, 1997. They finished as runners-up to Fiji that year, losing 21-24.
Fiji and New Zealand have been the most successful teams in the tournament, having claimed two titles each while England and Wales have also had their names etched on the winner’s trophy.
Coach Neil Powell has selected many players who stood out during the course of their title-retaining 2017/18 Series and head into the competition as one of the favourites.
