The Blitzboks maintain a comfortable eight point lead on the World Series standings despite failing to win the Vancouver 7s.

Fiji, who knocked the Blitzboks out of contention in a 15-12 semi final, were ultimate victors at the Vancouver 7s, with their 31-12 win over Kenya in the final.

The Blitzboks battled it out with the USA for third place and won comfortably, 29-7, claiming bronze and retaining their lead of the World Series table. The Blitzboks placed 4th in the Las Vegas Seven and now third in the Vancouver tournament, however they still remain comfortable table leaders, eight points ahead of second place Fiji, after six rounds of the World Sevens Series.
