Hong Kong - Seabelo Senatla scored twice as the Springbok Sevens opened their Hong Kong Sevens account with a 31-7 win over France on Friday.

According to the supersport.com website, the only game on the first day of the three day tournament for the Boks meant little as they quickly established their superiority and struck when it counted.

Senatla started well, and with his first touch of the ball, pounced on a bit of hesitation from the French defender to round him for the opening try.

Big French unit Virimi Vakatawa broke through two tackles to even up the scores, but then the Blitzbokke steamed ahead and left the French in their wake.

Justin Geduld scored before halftime, with Senatla adding his second just after the break.

Cecil Afrika and Werner Kok sealed the win with tries as the Boks moved past the first hurdle on their path.

The Blitzbokke will now face Spain and Australia on day two of the tournament to complete their pool play.
