Dayimani ruled out of Cape Town Sevens
SEVENS NEWS: Hacjivah Dayimani has been withdrawn from the Springbok Sevens squad for this weekend’s Cape Town Sevens at the Cape Town Stadium after suffering a flare-up of a previous ankle injury at training on Tuesday.
Springbok Sevens coach Neil Powell said the long-term welfare of the player was paramount.
“Hacjivah has a full season of rugby ahead of him next year and his recovery towards that is more important than our short-term goals for this weekend, so there is no sense in risking him,” said Powell.
