CAPE TOWN – You can’t be blamed for expecting Dewald Human to produce another boss performance this weekend after what he did in the Paris leg of the World Sevens Series last season.
It’s also been quite some time since he last touched grass on the circuit so he’ll be high on motivation.
On Monday, Cecil Afrika and Mfundo Ndhlovu were called up to join the Blitzboks as injury replacements for Kurt-Lee Arendse and Stedman Gans when the 10th and final tournament takes place at the Stade Jean-Bouin on Saturday and Sunday. And yesterday, the team were forced to call up a third replacement, Human, in place of Selvyn Davids, who has withdrawn for personal reasons.
In the final event of the World Series last year, Human not only celebrated a series victory with the Blitzboks but was also named Player of the Final, unsurprisingly so.
This season, he played in Dubai, Cape Town, Hamilton and Sydney, so it’s safe to say that he’ll be quite amped to replicate his Paris masterclass of 2018.
