South Africa 7s team strongman Werner Kok says they will have a point to prove at the Cape Town Sevens following their disappointing start in Dubai.

In their pool matches, they were pummelled by South Africa 31-0, before losing narrowly to Argentina 22-19 and Samoa 17-15.

The Chiefs have helped to ease the New Zealand men's sevens team's injury crisis. The Blitzboks will be playing in a specially designed Madiba jersey to celebrate the centenary celebrations of the late Nelson Mandela.

South Africa are holding centenary celebrations for the life of the inspirational former prisoner and president, who would have turned 100 years in 2018.

"We lacked a team effort, but once we sorted that out and found the team structure again, things went well, especially in the matches against Scotland and Fiji". You only get one opportunity to play in front of your home crowd, 50,000 people supporting you and then 50 million people at home.

"We are hugely thankful to the Chiefs for releasing Etene from his pre-season duties, this highlights the positive relationships we have been fostering with Super Clubs and is another example of how we can work together", Philp said. I'm sure that will add extra emotion into what should be an incredible tournament this weekend. There were a few changes in the off-season and pre-season, trying to put those into effect and you always have grand ideas, you want to hit your straps and have everything flawless. "What we want to do is build on that this weekend coming, which is what you have to do with each tournament - try to get better and better".
