Blitzboks lose Geduld

Justin Geduld has been ruled out of the Paris Sevens this weekend after picking up a hamstring injury.

The injury has been described as a niggle, but coach Niel Powell has decided not to risk further injury and has pulled Geduld from the tournament. Stephan Dippenaar will join the team on Wednesday as his replacement. 

Geduld has scored 238 points for the Blitzboks this season, placing him fifth on the overall rankings for the 2015-16 series.
