Blitzboks lose skipper

Paul Delport will miss the next two sevens tournaments because of ankle and arm injuries.

Delport will be sidelined for up to 12 weeks as he injured his ankle against Zimbabwe at the George Sevens. It has been reported that he has also picked up an upper arm injury.

This means that the Springbok Sevens’ captain will be ruled out of the next two legs in New Zealand and USA.

This will be a big blow for the Springbok Sevens as they will try to get their World Series title defence back on track after a disappointing start.
