Cape Town - Blitzboks captain Stedman Gans has presented a signed jersey to Australia Sevens counterpart Nick Malouf.
The jersey will be used in a campaign to help raise funds for victims of the devasting bushfires that have ravaged large parts of Australia in recent months.
The Blitzboks are currently in Sydney for this weekend's leg of the World Rugby Sevens series to be played from February 1-2.
The Blitzboks, who are coming off a disappointing 10th-place finish at last weekend's stop in Hamilton, New Zealand, have been drawn in Pool B alongside France, Argentina and Samoa.
The Blitzboks' schedule at the Bankwest Stadium is:
Saturday, February 1
v Argentina - 03:41 (SA time)
v France - 09:30 (SA time)
Sunday, February 2
v Samoa - 02:51 (SA time)
Due to the recent World Rugby schedule change, the Blitzboks will have to finish atop Pool B in order to progress to the semi-finals, where, should they do so, they will face the winner of Pool C - which includes Australia, the USA, Scotland and Japan.
