South Africa Blitzboks win Singapore Sevens

South Africa trailed still by 19 points with five minutes to play in the second half, but then Kurt-Lee Arendse, Angelo Davids and Ryan Oosthuizen scored tries, and Selvyn Davids, who had already kicked one conversion, landed a last-minute penalty goal that saw them lead for the first time in the match.

Interestingly it was also Selvyn Davids, who earlier in the half saved a certain try with a desperate tackle, who kicked the ball into touch in the final act and sent Blitzboks celebrations into overdrive.

Fiji hoisted the Cup last weekend in Hong Kong. "We got into another final, so we're doing something right" Baber said. We had a bumpy ride but showed the resilience in the game.

The results mean that South Africa remain in fourth place in the world series standings with 121 points but open up a 14-point cushion over fifth-placed England with 107 points.

Fiji, successful in Hong Kong last time out, remains second in the standings but is now just three points behind series leader USA. We worked hard together, as a team, to get those tries. "The group pushed all their way, but they were beaten by a very good South African team".
