Samurai win sevens jackpot

Samurai beat the Cheetahs 29-14 in the Cup final of the Sevens Premier League in George to win R1 million.

Consisting of up-and-coming talent, Samurai were too good for a Cheetahs side that contained stars like Raymond Rhule, Johann Sadie and Sarel Pretorius.

Samurai scored three quick tries in the decider and while the Cheetahs crossed the line just before half-time, the privately owned franchise scored another two tries in the second half to seal the win.

The All Stars beat the Sharks 29-5 in the third-place play-off.
