BlitzBokke redeem themselves with Vegas win

BC0veV-CMAAZUsDAfter what has been a very disappointing Sevens world series for the BlitzBokke, with their previous best performance being a Cup semi-final spot, they sought some redemption by winning the Vegas 7’s Cup with a 40-21 victory over New Zealand, their biggest cup final win.

It was a result few saw coming with NZ being tipped as clear favourites going into the match, however some outstanding running rugby, and tactical kicking, gave them a well earned win, which meant they finished the tournament undefeated, and it elevated them to 2nd in the World Series overall ranking.
