Blitzboks coach Neil Powell has added Hacjivah Dayimani to his squad for the Cape Town Sevens this weekend.
Dayimani made his first run-out for the SA Sevens Academy last weekend as the team won the Dubai International Invitational tournament.
Victory for the SA 7s Academy side in Dubai. They defeated the Ramblin Jesters 28-12 to take the International Invitation title. A try by Hacjivah Dayimani and a hat trick by Angelo Davids did the job for the Academy side after they trailed by 12 points. @Dubai7s #Blitzboks pic.twitter.com/ial4os3D62

The 22-year-old takes the place of Christi Grobbelaar, who travelled with the Blitzboks to Dubai as the 13th player.
The expectation is that Dayimani could potentially be named in the 12-man squad in place of either Chris Dry or Ryan Oosthuizen.
Powell will confirm his final squad for the tournament on Thursday.
