World Sevens Rugby in Vegas

Hey there sports fans, how is everyone doing today? The World Rugby Sevens Series finished up its leg in Las Vegas, Nevada on the weekend and South Africa extended their lead. The South African Blitzboks defeated Fiji to give themselves a 24 point lead in the series that has seen them win 4 out of the 5 tournaments this term. The game was a rocky affair for the Blitzboks, but managed to control the game in the second half and outscore Fiji three tries to two.

Blitzboks on the up

The Blitzboks have managed to get to second place in the series for the past four years, but this year they are leading the pack after victories in Dubai, Sydney, Wellington and as of last week, Las Vegas. Their only major loss unfortunately came in Cape Town during the HSBC Cape Town Sevens in December but other than that small blemish the team have a perfect start to the 2017 campaign.

Head Coach Neil Powell seemed very pleased with the way his team has been performing, noting that the players are believing in their system and working hard as a team and not as individuals. Powell also noted this as a great thing for the nation of South Africa as the players are showing a lot of pride in their jerseys and the fact that they can represent their home country. He also noted that their second half game was a much needed improvement over the first half, and that the team was able to compose themselves to secure this win.

The host country USA finished in third place after a narrow 19-15 defeat of New Zealand for the bronze medal, and Kenya manages a victory over Samoa 21-14 for the Challenge Trophy.
