Scintillating Blitzboks victorious in Dubai

Australia's Lachie Anderson is tackled in the loss to England at the World Rugby Sevens Series in Dubai

As a result of the 24-12 win over New Zealand in the final‚ South Africa won their fifth Dubai title and set themselves up perfectly for next weekend's home tournament in Cape Town after winning all six matches in the emirate.

A dominant first-half display from the Blitzboks saw them lead 19-0 at half-time, playing a 6 man New Zealand at a stage.

The national sevens team dusted off their dispiriting defeat at the hands of South Africa to overpower Uganda 29-14 and secure their Cup Quarters slot at the HSBC World Series opening leg in Dubai. Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb got the All Blacks Sevens back into the match, but at 19-12 it was the powerful Tim Agaba who closed the game out.

"We kind of let them back into the game and a silly yellow card and one or two silly mistakes towards the end nearly cost us", Snyman said after the final.

"It was a long pre-season and a lot of guys went on to play some 15s so it's a new team with some unfamiliar faces".

"It's been a while since we all played together but it's so great to win again in Dubai", added Senatla, who scored seven tries in Dubai.

"I feel like we're making a porn", Blackstock laughed as Corden reprimanded him for ruining the mood. And it's pretty common knowledge that James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" segments are a must watch.

It was the World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year 2016 Seabelo Senatla who showed his tactical awareness for the Blitzboks second, ripping the ball out of a ruck on the Fiji 10 metre line and slipping through the defence untouched.

Meanwhile, England landed the bronze after beating Fiji 28-21.

New Zealand had a player sin-binned in the first half and South Africa in the second half.

The US went on to beat Russian Federation 21-12 in the semi-finals, but were comprehensively outplayed 34-0 by Olympic gold medallists Australia in the final.

Other Shujaa tries were scored by Eden Agero, Dan Sikuta, Oscar Ayodi and Brian Tanga with Solomon Okia and Phillip Wokorach grounding Cranes' tries.
