Kenya's Oscar Ouma attacks against Fiji on day two of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series in Las Vegas on 4th March, 2018.

The Springbok Sevens side will not be dwelling too much on their failure to successfully defend their title in Las Vegas and will rather look at what they need to do to return to winning ways in Vancouver this week.

Thrust between a rock and a hard place after beating Russian Federation but falling to France in its other group "A" matches, the Innocent Simiyu coached side turned on the style, taking the Fijians, champions of the New Zealand Sevens head-on, and it paid off handsomely at the end.

ONE OF ARGUABLY THE greatest ever tries in Sevens rugby was scored at a tournament in Las Vegas over the weekend.


The South Africans had earlier lost 12-10 to Argentina in the Cup semi-finals.

"The last three tournaments and the last three times we have played them we have had a solid win in Sydney, right down to the wire in Hamilton and then again today, it was right down to the wire", Friend said. "We have to take in the positives because we have some very tight games and fix a little bit of the mistakes that we have had and I believe we will be good to go in Vancouver", Ambaka said.

South Africa leads the overall series with 77 points after four events, followed by New Zealand (69), Fiji (62) and Australia (60).

A move which started with some routine recycling of the ball, resulted in Baker running the length of the pitch to score a try as part of a 19-7 victory.
