And then there was only one tournament left.

What an HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series so far, especially for South Africa.

With nine tournaments played to date, the BlitzBokke can lay claim to five titles. With the Series crown also secured, the Springbok7s will not hold back in London this weekend.

We want to finish it well, we owe it to ourselves to go out with a bang. We still have some work to do,” said senior player Chris Dry.

Note: time stated below is SA-time. South Africa is 1 HOUR ahead of London time.

The Pool-draw for the London7s:

Pool A – South Africa, USA, Wales, Kenya
Pool B – Scotland, France, Argentina, Russia
