The Springbok Sevens defended their Dubai title with a 24-12 win over New Zealand in the final.

The Blitzboks maintained a 100% winning record at the tournament and will take the momentum and confidence into the Cape Town leg of the HSBC Sevens Series next week.

Joe Revovo was sin binned early in the game following a dangerous tackle on Braco du Preez and Philip Snyman.

Seabelo Senatla and Kwagga Smith scored the three first half tries to give the Blitzbokke a comfortable 19-0 lead into the break.

Tim Agaba sealed the victory for South Africa and Neil Powell’s troops claimed the gold medal in Dubai.
