Dubai - The Blitzbokke will face their old nemesis Fiji in the final after defeating England 26-12 (half-time 14-5) in the semi-final of the Dubai Sevens.

Although England scored early on with Mike Ellery scoring the first try of the match, the South Africans looked to be well on their way to victory as they took a 14-5 lead going into half-time, after tries from Cecil Afrika and Justin Geduld.

However, England fought their way back with a try to come within two points of the Blitzbokke. But tries from Werner Kok and Chris Dry sealed victory for the Blizbokke.

South Africa will face Fiji in the Cup final later on Saturday (18:21 SA time), after the Fiji beat New Zealand 44-0 in their semi-final.
