The second leg of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens returns to Cape Town this week.

This will be the fourth time in a row Cape Town hosts the South African leg of the World Series.

On the field, the Springbok Sevens team will have a point to prove after a dismal showing in the first leg of the World Series in Dubai over the weekend.

Neill Powell’s charges finished a disappointing sixth place after first succumbing to England in the quarter-finals, and then to Fiji in the playoff for fifth place after winning the opening event of the season last year when they beat New Zealand in the final. Subsequently, New Zealand went on to take away top honours in Dubai for their first title at the venue since 2009.

To make matters more spicy, the home team have been drawn to face Zimbabwe, Samoa and New Zealand on the opening day of the fourth edition of the tournament on Saturday 8 December, with the Blitzboks’ clash against the All Blacks Sevens at 19:56 concluding what promises to be a scintillating day of action.

Limited tickets for Saturday are still available at Computicket (online and outlets countrywide), but the expectation is that all available seats will be sold out when the first match, between Scotland and Canada, kicks off at 10:15.

Among the other highly anticipated clashes will be England facing Fiji, the USA taking on Argentina in an Americas battle and Scotland and Wales looking for Celtic bragging rights.

The Pools for the Cape Town Sevens are:

Pool A:

New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa, Zimbabwe

Pool B:

USA, Argentina, Spain, Japan

Pool C:

England, Fiji, France, Kenya

Pool D:

Australia, Scotland, Canada, Wales
