Cape Town - The Blitzboks finished third at the Singapore Sevens after defeating Argentina 28-0 in a play-off match at the National Stadium.

The try was converted by Branco du Preez to give his side a 7-0 lead at half-time.

In the second half further converted tries from Siviwe Soyizwapi, Stephan Dippenaar and Ruhan Nel saw the Blitzboks run away with the encounter.
