After a hectic Cathay Pacific/Credit Suisse Hong Kong Sevens where there were so many events and appearances on the sideline of Hong Kong’s traditional Rugby Week, the Springbok Sevens side open Day 1 of the 2011 Australian Sevens at the Adelaide Oval tomorrow.

I’m sure all of you will join BlitzBokke.com in wishing the Boys everything of the best for this weekend. If past performances are anything to go by, the Springboks have a knack of bouncing back from a Hong Kong disappointment only to walk away with the Cup spoils in Adelaide the following weekend.
At the time of posting this it’s just just after 11pm on Friday (March 1, 2011) so they will probably not see this message tonight.
However, I have no doubt that Kyle Brown and his band of courageous Springboks know how much we love and support them.
