Cape Town - Blitzboks Sevens captain Kyle Brown will make his 50th Sevens World Series appearance this weekend in Cape Town. 

The buzz in the city has been clear to see, with tickets for both Saturday and Sunday sold out as coach Neil Powell's men look to win their third straight tournament on home soil. 

And while it is shaping up to be a special weekend for Brown, he is underplaying his milestone ... like any good captain would. 

"I’m going to go and play some rugby … some good rugby, hopefully," Brown said.

"Nothing special, I feel like I’m just privileged enough to have played in this team for a long period of time and that’s special enough for me."

Brown did acknowledge that there was something different in the air this time around, though.

"I’m really excited. There’s a little more excitement bubbling under the surface than usual so I’m looking forward to getting onto the field and hopefully we can deliver the goods," he said.

The Blitzboks are grouped alongside England, Kenya and Zimbabwe.
