2019-12-20 09:58

Cape Town - The Springbok Sevens side will contest a Pool B alongside Kenya, England and Japan at the Hamilton Sevens in New Zealand next month.

The event - the third on the 2019/20 World Rugby Sevens series calendar - is scheduled for the weekend of January 25-26.

The Blitzboks won the first event in Dubai earlier this month when they beat New Zealand 15-0 in the final, before losing 7-5 in the final to the All Blacks Sevens in Cape Town last weekend.

In Hamilton, hosts New Zealand will contest Pool A alongside Scotland, USA and Wales.

Pool C features France, Ireland, Canada and Spain, while Pool D is a tough one with Fiji, Argentina, Australia and Samoa to slug it out.

South Africa and New Zealand are currently level at the top of the standings with 41 points apiece. - Compiled by Herman Mostert
