Treu’s men win Plate

The Springbok Sevens team beat Scotland 14-5 in the Plate final in Edinburgh.

The Boks beat France 19-0 in the semi-final, but were knocked out of the Cup competition earlier in the day by England – going down 10-0. Paul Treu’s squad looked a jaded unit throughout, but picked themselves up against the motivated hosts in the final, who they had beaten by a solitary point yesterday.

This secures second spot in the IRB Sevens World Series for the Boks behind New Zealand, who beat England 24-14 in the Cup final.
