Blitzbokke win French Sevens in Paris

Playing 45 games so far, this year losing only 8 of those games are one of the reasons why the Blitzbokke are the best in the world now.

Before they ran on the field for the Cup final against Scotland in Paris they have already sealed the Championship.

Winning the final was just the confirming how good Neil Powel team have been this year.

They beat Scotland 15-5 in the final to win their fifth tournament of the season. They have earlier beaten the New Zealanders in the semi-final 26-5 and Samoa in the quarter final 12-0.

They were off to a flying start with Werner Kok scoring the first try. They kept the pressure on the Scots and the second try came soon after with Dykan Sage going over.

They Blitzbokke led by halftime 10-0 and looked like the better team.

Scotland did came back with a great try to close the gap to 10-5 but it was again Specman who ran down the touchline kicking for his captain to seal the victory.

With only England next week ahead, the Blitzbokke can make it six tournament wins this season
