Amakhosi snap up sevens side

South African football giants Kaizer Chiefs have bought a rugby team for the Sevens Premier League in George in December.

According to Rapport newspaper, Chiefs enrolled a team for the multi-million rand event last Wednesday after negotiations with promoter Willem Strauss proved successful.

The official announcement is only expected to be made on Monday, with former Springbok centre Gcobani Bobo set to coach the Amakhosi team and ex-Bok winger Breyton Paulse to captain them.
