The South African Sevens rugby team has won the Vancouver leg of World Rugby’s Sevens Series.

They beat fellow Africans, Kenya, 38-5 in the final. Due to COVID-19, the 2021 World Series has been reduced to just two rounds and many of the top teams such as New Zealand, Fiji and Australia are not participating.

The Blitzboks were the overwhelming favourites heading into the weekend and they did not disappoint. They scored six tries in the final through Angelo Davids who dotted down twice, Sakoyisa Makata, Chris Grobbelaar, Ronald Brown and Darren Adonis.

The men in green and gold had a commanding 24-0 lead at half-time.
