South Africa repeated what it did a week ago in Vancouver and Edmonton Sevens champion was crowned. Those directed by Neil Powell they defeated Great Britain 24-12 in the final and won the trophy.
After finishing undefeated on the first day, the South African cast started again as favorites and proved it on the field of play. With a comfortable triumph against Hong Kong, 46-0 in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup, the champions reached the semifinals, where they met with Kenya, the rival of Vancouver’s definition.
Before the Kenyans, South Africa gave another sample of its good present and celebrated the pass to the final with a loose result (33 to 7), which I place as a firm candidate to stay with the contest.
Against the British, the Blitzboks had their most demanding match of the tournament, but despite starting at a disadvantage due to Robbie Fergusson’s try, they knew how to control the actions of the match and lift the cup, for the second weekend in a row.
It should be noted that, as in Vancouver, the only South American team present was the Chilean team. The Condors finished tenth, after falling to Spain 29 to 12, in the last game.
THIS WERE THE RESULTS OF THE DAY
