The Blitzboks topped Pool B and will now face Ireland for a place in the semi-finals.

Dylan Sage’s superb last-minute effort secured the Blitzboks victory against France to top Pool B at the Singapore Sevens on Saturday.

Team South Africa opened their campaign on Friday with convincing wins over Spain (31-7) and Samoa (15-10), before a thrilling 20-19 result against France in the group decider kept their momentum going at Singapore’s National Stadium.

Leading 15-0 at half-time, Quewin Nortje, Selvyn Davids and Tristan Leyds crossed the line for the Blitzboks, but France took the lead after the restart with two tries from Aaron Grandier and nine points from Jean Pascal Barraque.

But Sage, playing his first tournament back on the circuit since 2018, stalled after a huge break from Rosko Specman to extend South Africa’s unbeaten run.

Head coach Philip Snyman’s squad must now regroup for their cup quarter-final clash with Ireland at 2.12pm.
