WATCH: Blitzboks perform with CT Philharmonic Orchestra!

Cape Town - This weekend sees the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series return to Cape Town and the Blitzboks have found a unique way of promoting the event.

In a video posted to the official Cape Town 7s Twitter account, the Blitzboks and the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra perform a song together. 

Rosko Specman, clad in a dapper suit and a bow tie, performs as the conductor as the orchestra and members of the Blitzboks give a performance to remember. 

Captain Philip Snyman, Chris Dry, Seabelo Senatla, Branco du Preez, Justin Geduld and Cecil Afrika all feature as the video cuts between the orchestra and shots of Cape Town Stadium and last year's tournament. 

As good as Senatla looked blowing away on a flute, he definitely looks more at home scoring tries in the green and gold! 

Tickets for both days of the Sevens this weekend are sold out. 

The Blitzboks, who won the first event of the year last weekend in Dubai, will be looking to right the wrongs of 2016 when they lost to England in the Cape Town final.
