Cape Town - It's no surprise that no Blitzbok players feature in the Dream Team named after the completion of this past weekend's Las Vegas Sevens.

It was another disappointing tournament for the Springbok Sevens side, who lost 14-12 to Fiji in their fifth-place semi-final match.

The Blitzboks were earlier eliminated 29-10 by the USA in the Cup quarter-finals and also struggled on the opening day, most notably being held to a 5-all draw by lowly Chile.

Las Vegas champions USA have four players in the Dream Team - Carlin Isles, Martin Iosefo, Steve Tomasin and Ben Pinkelman - while the remainder of the team includes New Zealand's Sione Molia, Fiji's Jerry Tuwai and Samoa's David Afamasaga.

The USA beat Samoa 27-0 in the Cup Final and currently lead the overall standings with a five-point advantage over the All Blacks Sevens.
