CAPE TOWN – A host of familiar and decorated Springbok Sevens players will depart for England on Monday where they will play in the Athlete Factory Sevens in Chester on Friday and Saturday.
Coach Neil Powell recalled a number of stalwarts from his 2018 squad to make this trip, including former World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year Seabelo Senatla and Springbok tourist, Ruhan Nel.
The Stormers duo are joined by Rosko Specman and Dylan Sage, who have added Super Rugby experience with the Bulls to their accomplishments since the last time they played for the Bok Sevens in the World Rugby Sevens Series.
Sage will lead the team for this tournament, as Siviwe Soyizwapi played at the Safari Sevens this past weekend.
There is also a return to the team for Zain Davids, JC Pretorius and Justin Geduld. Davids underwent surgery to his shoulder after an injury sustained in Hong Kong in March, while Geduld went under the knife at the end of the 2018/19 World Series where South Africa placed fourth.
