Cape Town - Following their heartbreak at the London Sevens, two Springbok Sevens players received some consolation when they were included in the Dream Team for the tournament.

The Blitzboks butchered a golden opportunity to win the Cup final when Scotland scored twice in the last 30 seconds to win 27-26 and claim their first ever Sevens World Series title.

Three Scots - Mark Robinson, Damien Hoyland and Scott Riddell - were named in the Dream Team for the event, while South Africa’s Rosko Specman and Tim Agaba cracked the nod, along with New Zealand’s Rieko Ioane and America’s Perry Baker.

Following the tournament, the Springbok Sevens team finished the 2015/2016 World Rugby Sevens Series in second place behind Fiji, who earlier secure their No 1 spot when they reached the Cup quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, there was also consolation for Blitzbok speedster Seabelo Senatla who ended the series as the leading try scorer with 66 tries. He is also the leading points’ scorer for the team this season with 330 points.
