SA set up Dubai rematch
5 Dec 2008
South Africa will face England in the Cup quarter-final of the George Sevens on Saturday in a repeat of last week’s final in Dubai.
In the final match of their pool the Sevens Boks saw off the challenge of a tough Australian side to seal top spot. The Sevens Boks were 7-5 down at half-time, but fought back well in the second and tries from Rennie Dezel and Gio Aplon secured a 17-7 win over the Wallabies.
Earlier in the day four first half tries including a hat-trick from Robert Ebershon helped South Africa to an easy victory of Georgia, while two tries in either half was enough to overcome the USA.
In the other big game of the day, New Zealand came from behind to beat England to set up a clash with the USA, who upset Australia earlier in the day.
