Cape Town - Two Springbok Sevens players have cracked the nod for this past weekend's Canada Sevens Dream team.

The Blitzboks stormed to the title with a 21-12 win over France in the Cup Final in Vancouver.

Selvyn Davids and JC Pretorius were the two South Africans picked in the Dream Team for the event.

Runners-up France had two players - Stephen Parez and JP Barraque - while the rest of the team consisted of Canada's Connor Braid, USA's Stephen Tomasin and Samoa's Tofatu Solia.

South Africa started the tournament fifth on the overall log, a point behind England in fourth.

But the Vancouver win pushed them nine points clear of England and back into fourth and Olympic qualification criteria.
