Earlier on Day 1

The Blitzboks had the perfect start to day 1 of the Sydney Sevens on Saturday morning.

They started by thrashing Tonga in their first match 45-5. We saw some great tries from the Blitzboks as they try to improve on their poor start to the season.

Against Argentina it was a bit more difficult but they got their win 25-10.

Argentina scored first and put huge pressure on the Blitzboks in that first half, but a late try in the first half they manage to score their first try.

They will face Australia in their last pool match at 11:23 this morning.

Winning that one, they will win their pool and advance to the quarter finals.

  1. And then Geduld fuck it away 3 times: Lost kick off at start of game (=3 tries for Oz); then send off (Oz take lead towards end of game); then tries to score, when all he had to do was kick out. Voila, SA out of quarters. Fokken dom.
