Blitzbokke Are Champions In Dubai

Thrilling action, great crowds, a wonderful party atmosphere, top class entertainment and all in a superb, purpose-built venue. Blend it all together and the Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens was without doubt an event to remember, for all those who turned up and joined in the party.


This year, South Africa’s Blitzbokke stole the show with their impeccable sportsmanship and skill. The Springbok Sevens team got their Dubai Sevens campaign off to a fast start with a 36-0 win over Portugal on Friday 4 December. Here Werner Kok was impressive, bagging a hat-trick of tries. Later on that day, The Blitzbokke raced into a 12-0 lead, before the Canadians fought back to level matters early in the second half. However, it did not stop the Boks as they stepped it up to seal the win. The Blitzbokke continued their successful run on Saturday, after a 40-0 annihilation of Argentina in the quarterfinal and their 28-0 whitewash of New Zealand in the semi-final.


South Africa’s sheer speed and determination to win helped them beat first-time Dubai finalists Australia 33-7, to claim their first Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens title since 2008. Looking back at their successful campaign, South Africa captain Kyle Brown, who lifted the trophy, said, “Intensity in defence made the difference for us, in the ultimate analysis – we’ve had issues with that in the past, but it was brilliant this time, especially against New Zealand. There was desperation, not just hunger, in our performance – that showed just how badly the guys wanted it.”


There was more joy for South Africa following their crowning glory, as Werner Kok was named the player of the tournament for his outstanding overall performance across both days of competition in the men’s tournament. Speaking after the final, Kok added: “The guys stuck to their gameplan and stuck through with their attitudes. We wanted it more, and the guys just gave it everything - we took it a game at a time and focused on doing our principles right. Our focus from here on in will be purely on maintaining our consistency.”


From family fun to fancy dress and if you want to let your hair down and show support for your favourite team, then the Dubai Rugby 7’s is definitely an event to attend in 2015. DTCM SA is very proud of all the teams that participated and hope to see the same tenacity and drive from the Blitzbokke in the 2015 Dubai Rugby 7’s
