Blitzbokke klap Kiwis

The Springbok Sevens won their second Las Vegas title in three seasons after a record 40-21 win over New Zealand in the Cup final.

South Africa were in stunning form in the final with Branco du Preez, back in the side after missing three tournaments because of injury, putting in a stellar performance, scoring two tries and contributing a haul of 18 points.

The Blitzbokke not only registered their biggest ever Cup final win over New Zealand, but they also reclaimed second position on the Sevens World Series log.

It was the team’s first Cup success in two years after their win in Scotland in 2011.
