Springbok Sevens coach, Neil Powell, and Springbok Women’s Sevens coach, Renfred Dazel, are keen to their seasons going at the Dubai Sevens, to be played on December 1-2 at The Sevens Stadium in Dubai.
The draw for the tournament was announced on Thursday and the Blitzboks, who are the defending HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series champions as well as the current Dubai Sevens title holders, drew Canada, Kenya and Uganda in Pool A.
The Springbok Women will compete against New Zealand, USA and France, also in Pool A.
According to Powell, the pool, with a distinct African flavour will be pretty tough, as the World Series has become more and more competitive.
