Ruhan Nel scored two tries as the Blitzboks beat Kenya 17-5 on Sunday to book their place in the Cape Town Sevens Cup semi-finals.
The result sees South Africa extending their unbeaten run in the 2019 edition of the Cape Town Sevens. Neil Powell’s charges will face France in the Cup semi-final later today.
Kenya bossed the collisions for much of the contest. It was on the back of a brutal display around the ruck that they took an early 5-0 lead.
The Blitzboks hit back either side of half-time, though, to seize control. Ruhan Nel’s finishing was superb in both instances.
A further try in the second half sealed the result and brought the big crowd to its feet.
