South Africa’s Sevens Boks are the champions of Glasgow but New Zealand’s All Blacks are the champions of the world.
The Boks beat New Zealand 28-21 for a third World Series Tournament win of the year but the Kiwis, courtesy of their consistency all season, were crowned World Series Champions for the 11th time in 14 seasons.
New Zealand has won just one tournament this year but invariably they played in the final or semi-final whereas South Africa’s inconsistency in the early part of the Series ensured they were never in contention for the main season prize.
Paul Treu’s side were outstanding in Glasgow, as they were in Tokyo. They have now backed up in successive tournaments. They also hammered New Zealand to win the Las Vegas Sevens.
They also won in Glasgow without two of their best players in Cecil Africa and Branco du Preez.
