Cape Town - The Springbok Sevens team beat Wales 12-5 in their final pool match on the first day of the Dubai Sevens on Friday.


The Blitzbokke trailed early on, but rebounded with tries from Werner Kok and Kwagga Smith. Wales attacked ferociously inside the South African 22m area late in the game, but were unable to force their way through.

South Africa topped Pool D following their unbeaten opening day.

In their earlier games on Friday, the Blitzbokke beat Portugal (36-0) and Canada (24-12).

The South Africans will be eager to improve in this weekend's event after a slow start to their Sevens World Series campaign at Australia's Gold Coast in October, when they finished fourth after losing the third place playoff game 19-0 to England.


South Africa:

Tries: Werner Kok, Kwagga Smith
Conversion: Branco du Preez


Try: Harries
