Johannesburg - The Blitzboks had no problem seeing off Spain at the Sydney Sevens on Saturday morning as they took another step towards the quarter-finals. 

In the end, it was Rosko Specman who sparked the South Africans into life with two first-half tries that set the platform for a 38-0 win. 

Specman's two scores were solely responsible for the Blitzboks taking a 14-0 lead into half time. 

Ruhan Nel scored South Africa's third with a perfectly executed attacking move from a set piece, and Justin Geduld got the fourth after a neat exchange of passing from the dominant South African runners.

Not to be outdone by his team-mates, Seabelo Senatla then got on the scoreboard before Dylan Sage dotted down in the left corner for his side's sixth.

The Blitzboks, who had smashed minnows Papua New Guinea 50-0 on Friday, will play their final game in Pool C at 09:14 against England. 

South Africa will play one of France, Argentina, Kenya or Wales in the quarter-finals.
