South Africa topped their pool at the Gold Coast Sevens in Australia after beating France, Spain and England on day one.

Neil Powell began his stint as Springbok Sevens coach with a 29-5 win against France. Justin Geduld, Chris Dry and Stephan Dippenaar scored first-half tries, while Sampie Mastriet and Frankie Horne got over the line in the second.

The Blitzboks thrashed Spain 38-7 in their second match, with Geduld (two), Horne, Kyle Brown, Cecil Afrika and Jamba Ulengo scoring tries.

In their toughest pool match of the day, South Africa beat England 22-14 with Dippenaar, Cornal Hendricks, Geduld and Brown crossing the line. The Blitzboks led 10-7 at the break.

They will now face Wales in the Cup quarter-finals on Sunday.

'It’s been a great day, three wins from three, but if we don't come back tomorrow and play like we did tonight then it counts for nothing,' said Powell.
