Jeff Oluoch leaves Sevens camp ahead of Cape Town 7s

Blitzboks grouped with NZ Sevens in Cape Town

It is the Black Ferns Sevens fifth title in a row, they have now won their last 30 matches on the series and 39 in a row in global competitions.

Cape Town - The Blitzboks will draw energy from the expected full house at the Cape Town Stadium when the second of ten HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series tournaments kicks off in Cape Town on Saturday.

The Blitzboks' lineout and attack training session at Bishops in Cape Town looked sharp and focused, but according to Werner Kok‚ it will be Thursday's defence session that matters most.

Springbok Sevens captain, Philip Snyman, said they are keen to get going at the Cape Town Sevens this weekend, where they will meet Zimbabwe, Samoa and New Zealand in pool A on the opening day.

Last week their ability to put ball carriers under pressure‚ dominate the breakdown and win turnovers to launch counter-attacks was largely absent in Dubai. "I think we will really inspire them by the fact that we will play in a limited edition jersey, a one-off jersey, as a tribute to the late Madiba", Snyman said. There are some positives that we can take out of those games.

Nathan-Wong added: "I'm stoked with the win - this tournament we really had each others' backs".

Facebook's reputation as an employer is really suffering
To put into context, more than 830,000 employers are reviewed on Glassdoor and the average company rating is 3.4 out of 5. It is possible that Facebook slipped in the list this year because of all the controversies that have surrounded it.

"We made some poor decisions and conceded turnovers".

"We will be playing in front of 50 odd thousand people each day in the only weekend we get to play in our own country".

"The first four games in Dubai were not up to standard and although we lost [in extra time] against Fiji‚ we did a lot right. What we want to do is build on that this weekend coming, which is what you have to do with each tournament - try to get better and better".

All Blacks Sevens coach Clark Laidlaw has also called up Trael Joass and Taylor Haugh, while he's hopeful Jona Nareki and Regan Ware will recover from their knocks in time to feature in Cape Town.

"We need to do well in Cape Town", Kok said.
