Kamaba Floors is set to continue starring for the Sasol Bok sevens side. He will only join the Springbok fifteen man code when he is needed.

In the meanwhile Peter de Villiers Bok coach has given the Sasol Bok sevens side the go ahead to use the loose forward in the sevens series of the International Rugbyboard (IRB).

The IOL reports that Floors is one of the star performers for the Boks in the current IRB tournament that is taking place in London and that will finish on Sunday.

“He is also available to play for us in the IRB tournament in Edinburgh,” the Bok sevens coach, Paul Treu, told the Afrikaans Sunday newspaper, Sondag. The Edinburgh tournament will only start on 31 May. That means that Floors will not join the Bok fifteen man squad with John Smit (captain, hooker), Victor Matfield (lock), Percy Montgomery (fullback) and Butch James (fly half) on Monday.

While Floors is playing sevens rugby, De Villiers and his Bok fifteen man squad already assembled in Somerset West to start their preparations for the first test against Wales on 7 June at Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein. And with loose forwards like Joe van Niekerk, Luke Watson, Pierre Spies, Ryan Kankowski and Juan Smith, one can understand why Floors will get a further chance to show his worth in the sevens code.

Treu told Sondag: “They (Peter de Villiers) will only call on Kabamba when they need them.” – Sapa
