After a weekend of exciting games as part of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens, the Blitzbokke made a brave effort against New Zealand, coming in second with a final score of 7-5.

While they may not have walked away victorious, they certainly united the country and brought the gees!

Despite a great weekend with a win over France in the semi-finals and winning the Dubai crown, New Zealand managed to snatch the final title from our team.

South Africa hasn’t won a final on home turf since 2015, and 2019 wasn’t the year to bring the title home despite our teams best efforts.
