The Blitzboks produced a much better display on Saturday to cruise into the Hong Kong Sevens quarter-finals with a 26-10 win over Scotland.
The South Africans led 12-0 at halftime, which was in stark contrast to their battles on day one against Japan, where they were trailing 7-5 at the break.
Neil Powell’s team played with greater confidence and accuracy this time around, even though it took them a while to open the scoring.
And who else but Selvyn Davids was the man to unlock the Scottish defence.
Davids showed off his tremendous pace and stepping skills as he whizzed past a defender to dot down.
