South Africa and Spain among early confirmations for Safari Sevens 2019

On

World Sevens Series core side Spain is among twelve teams that have so far confirmed their participation at this year’s Safari Sevens.  The Spaniards, losing semifinalists at last year’s tournament were twelfth overall at the close of the 2018/19 World Series with 49 points, 12 clear of Kenya who finished 13th overall.

This year’s tournament which returns from the 18th to 20th October at the RFUEA Ground also sees South Africa send a representative squad for the first time since their Elite Player Development squad won the 2012 tournament. That squad was coached by current Blitzbok Head Coach Neil Powell and featured current Blitzbok stars Justin Geduld and Werner Kok.
