The South African Sevens team has won an epic Cup Final at the 2011 USA Sevens in Las Vegas.
They beat perennial bogey-team Fiji by 24 – 14 in a match worthy of a Cup Final.
Fiji’s desperation to win the match was shown when they fielded an injured Emosi Vocago who had dislocated his shoulder in the previous Cup Semi-final. Vocago was to leave the Final during half-time after a clash with Frankie Horne and Kyle Brown.
More on this great win to follow later.
