Solid start for SA Women in Vancouver
March 10, 2017
The Springbok Women’s Sevens recorded a solid start to the Vancouver Rugby Festival overnight on Thursday, winning two of their three matches in the Elite Women’s division at the UBC Rugby fields.

They registered an encouraging 24-10 victory against Canada’s Stars Rugby Women in their opening match, but went down 14-5 against the Maple Leafs in their second match.

The team coached by Renfred Dazel, however, finished the day on a strong note by defeating the USA Falcons 22-5. These results placed them in second place on the log table behind the Maple Leafs who advanced through the day unbeaten.

Dazel’s team will face all three teams again on Friday, with their first match being against the Stars Rugby Women, followed by the Maple Leafs and USA Falcons.

The top two teams on the log at the conclusion of the round will face one another in the gold medal match on Saturday at BC Place, where the HSBC Canada Sevens will be hosted, while the lower placed teams will face off in a bronze medal match.
