Cape Town - Two South Africans have cracked the nod for the 2016-17 World Rugby Sevens Series Dream Team.

The team was chosen after the series concluded at the London Sevens on Sunday.

Two Blitzboks - Chris Dry and Rosko Specman - were included in the season's Dream Team.

The rest of the team comprised of two Fijians - Kalione Nasoko and Jerry Tuwai - two Americans - Danny Barrett and Perry Baker - as well as England’s Dan Norton.

Scotland won the final event on the calendar when they upset hosts England 12-7 in the final at Twickenham, but South Africa (192 points) won the overall series, finishing well clear of England (164) and Fiji (150).
