The Springbok Women’s Sevens team on Thursday won the Centrale Sevens tournament in Paris, starting their short tour of France in the best possible way as they were unbeaten in their six matches.
The tournament culminated with a 24-7 win over the Ukraine in the final at Stade de la Peupleraie in the French capital and afterwards, Springbok Women’s Sevens coach Paul Delport was full of praise for the effort put in by the squad.
“I am very pleased and proud on how the team responded today. We had tough conditions, with rain yesterday and today, but the ladies really played well,” Delport said.
“We came here to be tested and to see where we are as a squad and I am pleased on both fronts. We are pretty lucky in not picking up any injuries and especially in our matches against Ukraine, the squad had to dig deep.
