Cape Town - The Blitzbokke secured their second win on the opening day of the London 7s with a 28-7 win over France.

South Africa dominated the match from start to finish to maintain their perfect record as they continue their bid for the world Sevens title.

Branco du Preez converted his own try to give the Blitzbokke an early lead.

South African captain scored his side's second try which was also converted to give the Blitzbokke a 14-0 lead.

Julien Candelon's second half try was converted to bring the French back into the match but Seabelo Senatla had other ideas.

Senatla's brace ended French hopes and ensured the Blitzbokke's win and 100% start to the competition.

Earlier in the day, the Blitzbokke breezed past Portugal 19-0.

South Africa face the USA in their final Pool D match. The match kicks off at 16:34.
