Dubai - The Blitzbokke have reached the Cup final of the Dubai Sevens tournament after beating New Zealand 28-0 on Saturday.

Kwagga Smith scored a hat-trick of tries for the Blitzbokke in the first half to open up a 21-point lead at half-time.

Cecil Afrika added a second half try after sustained pressure from the Sevens All Blacks to take the match beyond their reach with a mere minute remaining in the match.

They will play Australia in the final after they beat Fiji 29-24 after extra-time in their semi-final.
