Eight-time champion New Zealand will be looking to take another title off hosts South Africa at Round Two of the International Rugby Board Sevens World Series in George on Friday and Saturday.

After winning in the opening round in Dubai last week, the Kiwis will look to unseat the defending IRB and George champions, the Springboks, in this holiday resort on the Cape south coast.

But they have to be wary of several other quality teams – like Kenya, Fiji, Australia, Samoa, Wales, England and Argentina – who have title aspirations.
