South Africa have been drawn in the same group as Fiji in the third tournament of the 2010/11 IRB World Sevens Series to be held in Wellington, New Zealand. France and Canada make up the rest of the group of four teams that was announced on Friday.

The Springbok Sevens team are lying fifth in the standings with 24 points after winning the plate finals in the first two legs in Dubai and George.

England, who won in Dubai and reached the final in George, lead with 44 points.
New Zealand, who won in George, are four points behind in second.

The log leaders will face Wales, the United States and the Cook Islands.

New Zealand were drawn against Argentina, Scotland and Papua New Guinea.

Title-holders Samoa will play Australia, Kenya and Tonga.

    I fear that this team has plateau’ed under Treu. Tackle and tackle-point technique of this team is pretty poor.

  • Blitz Bok have really fallen off the pace……what’s happening ?@Richard Ferguson (Comment 1) :

    Punter….. I was also thinking having watched a bit of the sevens in the first two tournaments……that Fiji would be a great bet to win the series….they have looked really good yet have just not had the bounce of the ball in the first two tournaments.

    I havent seen a lot of the Sevens other than the Bok games..

    Im super keen for a bit of a bet, there is very little to punt on these days! I will have a look at whats available.

    My horse is running on Wednesday, really looking forward to going down to the track and punt a bit.

    How are things that side of the world HH?

  • @Big Fish (Comment 4) : So true that. Also doesn’t help that quite a few of them weigh about as much as your average teenager. :|
