LONDON – Blitzboks flyer Seabelo Senatla is ready to use his scorching pace again as the team prepares for the last two tournaments of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series.

Senatla has re-joined the squad after a brief foray into the 15s game and is eager to pick up from where he left off in March. 

The star returns to sevens duty this weekend, having last played in Hamilton, New Zealand (the fourth tournament of the series) and said the return was an easy one, as he immediately felt at home again with the Blitzboks.

"It was easy coming back, this family always stayed family and I watched them play when I was away," he admitted. "I’m not going to try and change anything this weekend," said Senatla about the forthcoming Pool D clashes with Russia, Samoa and Canada at Twickenham Stadium, London on Saturday.

"I know what my job is. I want to thank both coaches in my rugby set-up, the DHL Stormers coach, Robbie Fleck, for allowing me to come back to the sevens and to coach Neil Powell, for wanting me back and giving me another opportunity to serve my country. 

"I owe both of them a good performance, as both made sacrifices for me."

The leading try-scorer in Blitzboks history is keen to get going at the London Sevens.

"There are small adjustments to be made, but thanks to my teammates and coaches, I believe things will go well. I am keen to get back on the field with these guys," Senatla said.
