Springbok Women’s Sevens coach, Renfred Dazel, said the effort by his squad on day one of the Emirates Dubai Sevens deserved a round of applause as they frightened some of the big guns on the big stage of the SVNS series.
The Springbok Sevens squad remained in the hunt for yet another Emirates Dubai Sevens title with wins over Samoa, Canada and New Zealand on day one of the opening tournament of the 2024 HSBC SVNS series on Saturday. They will face Australia in the Cup quarterfinals on Sunday.
There were many memorable stories told about the Springbok Sevens and their exploits at the Emirates Dubai Sevens over the years, and according to assistant coach Philip Snyman, that is something the team can be very proud of, but it is now time for a new book and the first chapter of that starts at The Sevens Stadium on Saturday.
The domestic Vodacom United Rugby Championship franchises will be determined to make the most of their home ground advantage once again this weekend and make up some ground on the log when they take the field in round seven of the thrilling inter-hemisphere showpiece.
