SA Women aiming for better performance at Amsterdam Sevens
May 18, 2012

The South Africa Women’s team will be aiming to improve on their performance of last weekend in London when they participate at the annual Amsterdam Sevens on Saturday and Sunday.

The South Africans finished in seventh place at the London Sevens Challenge and this weekend they are of a dozen teams challenging for the prestigious Amsterdam crown.

Mandisa Williams and her teammates were drawn in a tough pool and their group opponents are London Sevens winners, England, the United States and Wales. Pool 2 consist of Canada, Spain, France and Ireland while Australia, Netherlands, Germany and Scotland are in the remaining group.

Denver Wannies, the SA Women’s coach, is looking forward to see his team in action against some quality opposition.

“We did reasonably well in London but we now have a rare chance to play in a second consecutive tournament and the players are determined to make the most of this opportunity. We are in a really strong group, but in a way we welcome that, because we can only improve as a team if we play against strong opposition on a regular basis,” said Wannies

The kick-off times (SA times) are:
14:40 SA vs. USA
17:00 SA vs. England
18:50 SA vs. Wales

The SA Women’s squad for the Amsterdam Sevens:

1. Mandisa Williams (captain)
