The Springbok Sevens side lost 7-5 to New Zealand in the Cup final, but there was some consolation for JC Pretorius, Rosko Specman and Ruhan Nel whose efforts were recognised by the organisers.

The Blitzboks were without Nel in the final as the midfielder picked up a hand injury in their 21-14 semi-final win against France.

But it was enough for him to earn Dream Team honours as he finished as South Africa's top try-scorer at this weekend's event, crossing the whitewash five times.

The rest of the Dream Team comprised Kenya's Alvin Otieno, New Zealand's Scott Curry, Ireland's Jordan Conroy and France's Jean-Pascal Barraque.

The Blitzboks, who beat the All Blacks 15-0 in the Dubai final last weekend, are now level at the top of the standings with the Kiwis on 41 points apiece.
