Cape Town - It's two out of two for the Blitzboks so far this weekend, with wins over Japan and African neighbours Kenya setting them off to a good start at the Sydney Sevens on Saturday.

Seabelo Senatla scored a hat-trick in the first game against Japan as South Africa an out 32-0 winners in their first assignment since winning the Wellington Sevens in New Zealand a week earlier. 

Things were far tighter against Kenya, and South Africa were made to come back from being 7-0 down to score two tries through Senatla and Rosco Speckman to win 14-7. 

Coach Neil Powell's charges take on England in their third and final group game at 11.11 (SA time).
