Juries returns to Sevens

Fabian Juries will be available for the last two tournaments of the IRB Sevens Series.

Juries was brought to Cape Town from Bloemfontein, and his role has been limited to that of a member of Western Province’s Vodacom Cup team. With WP out of the running and Juries not in contention for a Stormers’ place in the final stages of the Super 14, he has returned to the Springbok Sevens side.

In terms of the agreement between Western Province and Paul Treu, the national Sevens coach, Juries will also be available to accompany the Springboks Sevens to the Commonwealth Games to be held in October in Delhi, India.

Juries joined the squad in Stellenbosch where they are busy with preparations for the last two Series tournaments later this month at Twickenham and Murrayfield. He also played in a warm-up match on Thursday between the Springbok Sevens training squad and the SA Sevens Emerging team at the Danie Craven Stadium.

‘He’s adding a lot of experience and I’m pleased that he’s able to help out because there is still some doubt over the match fitness of Renfred Dazel and Paul Delport.

‘Fabba will obviously return to Western Province if they need him, but I’m hoping that he would be able to stay with us.’
