It was three from three for the Blitzboks in Canada by the time most South Africans woke up on Sunday morning.

Niel Powel men got off to the perfect start in Vancouver Sevens when they beat Chile, Wales and USA to top the standings in Pool A.

They took sweat revenge for the draw against Chile at the USA Sevens when they beat them in their first game 43-0.

They had to work hard against Wales but got over the line with a 19-10 win thanks to insane football skills from Selvyn Davids.

A hard-fought 19-10 over Wales was achieved thanks to tries from captain Philip Snyman, Selvyn Davids and Johannes Pretorius, two of which were converted by Davids.

But the Blitzboks left the best for their last pool game against the USA beating them 19-7.

The Blitzboks now face Argentina in the quarter-finals of the competition. That match kicks off at 20:08 (SA time).
