Cape Town - Springbok Sevens regular Philip Snyman will become the ninth South African to reach the special milestone of 35 World Rugby Sevens Series tournaments when the Hong Kong Sevens kicks off on Friday.

The Springbok Sevens team marks 35 tournaments as a special milestone and since the inception of the World Series in 1999, only Fabian Juries, Marius Schoeman, Mzwandile Stick, Frankie Horne, Kyle Brown, Chris Dry, Cecil Afrika and Branco du Preez have reached this landmark.

The versatile Snyman, who has scored 206 points (35 tries, 15 conversions) in the Blitzbok jersey since his debut for the team in Dubai in 2008, is playing in his fifth Hong Kong tournament and said the 35 tournament marker is a significant one for him.
