The South African Women's Sevens warmed up in ideal fashion for the their next two rugby assignments in Amsterdam and Russia by winning the Confederation of African Rugby tournament in Tunis on Saturday.

The team, coached by Denver Wannies and captained by Mandisa Williams, won all their matches after beating Senegal 28-0 and Kenya 36-0 in the pool stages. They then defeated Uganda 17-0 in the semifinal, which set them on course for a Cup final clash against the home team, whom they managed to beat 29-5.

South Africa’s squad consisted of 13 players and they were one of six African teams at the tournament and preparation camp arranged by CAR to provide high level coaching and much needed playing opportunity for the African women’s players. Zimbabwe and Uganda completed the list of invited teams.
