Dubai - The Springboks Sevens team have continued their good start to their Dubai Sevens campaign as they swept aside Russia 34-5 in their second pool D game on Friday.

The website reports that powerful forward Jamba Ulengo scored twice and was joined on the scoresheet by Branco du Preez, Phillip Snyman, Sampie Mastriet and Werner Kok – the latter who scored his first ever try in the HSBC World Series as they won their second consecutive game in the tournament.

It puts them in pole position to win pool D, even though they have a tough final game against defending champions Samoa later this afternoon.

Argentina shocked Samoa in their second game, beating them 19-12 to ensure it will be a dogfight for whoever qualifies for the Cup competition on day two.

The Blitzbokke looked good earlier, struggling past the nuggety Argentineans 17-7 in a workmanlike performance with Ulengo again stealing the show.

Earlier former SA Sevens coach Paul Treu started his tenure as the new Kenya coach with a rocky 10-7 win over Portugal, and followed it up with a 14-0 win over France.

His big test, however will come in the final game of the day against World Champions New Zealand, where Treu will see just how big his test will be going forward.
