Delport out of London tournament
May 07, 2013
The Springbok Sevens team suffered a setback on Tuesday ahead of the final tournament in the HSBC World Sevens Series when veteran playmaker Paul Delport was ruled out due to a knee injury.

He will be replaced by Bernado Botha, who last played for the team at the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay Sevens tournament in December 2012. Botha has played in 15 tournaments since his Blitzbok debut in the Emirates Airlines Dubai Sevens in 2012, scoring 31 tries (155 points).

Delport was in brilliant form at the recent Emirates Airlines Glasgow Sevens, where South Africa won their third title of the current series, but picked up the injury on day two of the event. He was included in the Dream Team voted for by the TV commentators afterwards.

Two more BlitzBokke, Seabelo Senatla and Justin Geduld, have already returned to South Africa to join the Junior Springboks at their training camp in Stellenbosch. The duo will now prepare with the SA U20s for the Junior World Championship in France later this month.

The revised Springbok Sevens squad for the Marriott Sevens in London is: Frankie Horne (captain), Philip Snyman, Chris Dry, Jamba Ulengo, Stephan Dippenaar, Werner Kok*, Cecil Afrika, Bernado Botha, WJ Strydom, Stephen Hunt, Pieter Engelbrecht, Cornal Hendricks.

*Debutant.
