Cape Town - Despite their loss in the Cup Final of the Canada Sevens, two Blitzboks cracked the nod for the Dream Team of the event in Vancouver.
The South Africans went down 19-7 to England in the showpiece match, but there was some consolation afterwards for Rosko Specman and Chris Dry, who received Dream Team honours.
Three English players - James Rodwell, Dan Norton and Tom Mitchell - were included in the team, with America’s Perry Baker and Argentina’s Matias Osadczuk also named.
Despite their defeat, the Blitzboks maintained their strong overall series lead.
The South Africans started the tournament, the second of the North American leg of the World Series, 24 points ahead of Fiji in second place. They now return to South Africa 23 points ahead of England, who have moved into second spot on the overall log. The lead over Fiji, current series champions and Olympic Gold medallists, is now 26 points with four tournaments remaining in the 2016/17 series. The next tournament, in Hong Kong, starts on April 7.
