The Blitzboks will be favourites to top Pool A on Day 1 of the Cape Town Sevens.
The Blitzboks won the first leg of the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series in Dubai. They will head into the second leg of the series with confidence and momentum. They should be further encouraged by their three-tournament winning streak in this part of the world.
Earlier this week, coach Neil Powell said that the team remained focused on the task at hand. The Blitzboks will need to win all three matches on Day 1 if they are to top Pool A and secure an easier route to the Cup semi-finals.
