Blitzboks get favourable draw for London Sevens

Blitzboks get favourable draw for London Sevens”

Kurt-Lee Arendse, playing from the replacements bench, Angelo Davids and Ryan Oosthuizen scored tries for South Africa, but Selvyn Davids landed only one conversion meaning Fiji still led 19-17 with two minutes to play.

The draw took place following South Africa's 20-19 win over Fiji in the Cup final of the Hong Kong Sevens, where the Blitzboks came from 19-0 down to stun the islanders.

South Africa scored 20 unanswered second half points to deny Fiji back to back titles at the Singapore Sevens.

But, despite the desperate start and being without some of their key players, South Africa dug deep and pulled off an epic comeback in the final - one which will galvanise this young team heading into the final stages of the World Series and begin to build for the 2020 Olympics.

Fiji though, showed their class just minutes later, with Josua Vakurunabili leveling the scores with just three minutes gone.

Will Edwards helped England to a 14-7 lead at the break, and further tries from Harry Glover and Mike Ellery sealed victory.

The Blitzboks piled on the pressure with Tuimaba coming back on to restore Fiji to their full compliment.

Fiji infringed, however, and Selvyn Davids kicked the decisive penalty goal in the final minute.

The win sees South Africa remain fourth on the overall standings while Fiji stays 2nd with the U.S. still holding the lead.
