Cape Town - Although he only spent two tournaments with the Blitzboks, Springbok winger Bryan Habana thoroughly enjoyed the experience. 

After striking a deal with Habana's French club Toulon, Blitzbok coach Neil Powell picked the speedster for the squad that did duty at the Las Vegas and Vancouver legs of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

Habana will not forget the three week experience easily. 

“I had a fantastic time with the squad and the experience and memories of visiting two great cities such as Las Vegas and Vancouver is something I won’t easily forget,” said Habana.

With four rounds remaining in the series, Habana believes the Blitzboks are well placed to end the season on a high and then aim for glory at the Rio Olympics. 

“Everyone in the squad made me feel at home and welcomed me into their fantastic brotherhood, and for that experience I am truly grateful. South Africa can be very proud of what the (Springbok) Sevens have achieved over the past 12 years or so. This squad has the potential to achieve many great things over the next six months.”
