2 Blitzboks crack nod for Paris Dream Team

Cape Town - Two Springbok Sevens heroes, Chris Dry and Philip Snyman, have been included in the Dream Team for the Paris Sevens event.

The Blitzboks beat Scotland 15-5 in Sunday’s Cup final and with England losing in the semi-finals, the South Africans also secured the overall World Series title.

Three Scots - Jamie Farndale, George Horne and Mark Robertson - also made the Dream Team, with England’s Dan Norton and Frenchman Jean-Pascal Barraque completing the team.

Following the Paris event, there was also reward for South Africa's Werner Kok, who scooped the Player of the Final award.

It was Blitzboks’ fifth title of the season - which allowed them to take an unassailable lead in the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series standings.

They will be crowned champions this weekend when the series concludes with the London Sevens at Twickenham.
