This follows reports that South Africans supporting New Zealand reportedly spat at team members of the Springbok Sevens team after they beat the All Black Sevens side in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.

SuperSport rugby writer, Brenden Nel, who was at the stadium reporting on the tournament, revealed the following via his official Twitter account:

"Bok Sevens team members tell how they were sworn at and spat at by South African All Black supporters on their victory lap. Classy."
