Cheetahs in tough pool at Cape Town Sevens

Oluoch was arguably Kenya's best player in Dubai where the team lost all their matches finishing at the bottom of the log with a paltry one point.

New Zealand defeated the United States 21-5 in the final of the first World Rugby Men's Sevens Series event of the season in Dubai.

Gayle Broughton then increased that lead only for Canada, bidding for their first Cup title since Sydney in 2017, to hit back nearly immediately through a long run-in by Julia Greenshields.

The Blitzboks' lineout and attack training session at Bishops in Cape Town looked sharp and focused, but according to Werner Kok‚ it will be Thursday's defence session that matters most.

A brace of tries from Player of the Final Tyla Nathan-Wong secured the win although New Zealand had to work hard for their victory over Canada, who were playing in their first Cup final.

They missed 55 tackles in six matches in Dubai‚ which is way below their own high standards. It doesn't matter who's wearing that black jersey, we've got each others' back and we really stepped it up.

Snyman said that deep desire‚ combined with the need to improve on their efforts in Dubai last week‚ will drive them at home.

"The one-on-one tackles were a lot better".

"Coach Neil Powell has a plan or two up his sleeve and I think we will be very competitive this weekend‚" said Snyman.

"We made some poor decisions and conceded turnovers". We have to go in lower with our tackles this weekend.

"We 've had this week to build on that and we have been talking about being patient and using the opportunities we created".

While NZ's resources will be stretched at the Cape Town Stadium in a tricky Pool that also contains Zimbabwe and Samoa‚ the Blitzboks are only waiting on Justin Geduld's fitness.

"We need to do well in Cape Town", Kok said. "We stayed composed and communicated really well and we got the win".
