CAPE TOWN – When it comes to Springbok Sevens thoroughbreds, they don’t come much purer than Kyle Brown.
The Blitzboks stalwart will this weekend equal the record set by Frankie Horne when he makes his 68th tournament appearance at the Hamilton leg of the 2018/19 World Sevens Series.
Last week,Blitzbok coach Neil Powell said that Brown is the kind of player who does everything for - and to improve - the Blitzboks.
And if you’ve followed the way he’s led the unit in the past and the type of player he is, you wouldn’t have much reason to disagree.
Brown’s pedigree will come in especially handy this weekend when Powell’s side - featuring four Hamilton rookies - will look to build on the third-place finish they secured in Cape Town after ending sixth in the opening leg in Dubai, although Powell has emphasised the importance of growth and on-field improvement over results.
