Three Ikeys in SA Sevens squad

The Springbok Sevens squad will start their preparations for the upcoming international season, that includes the 7s World Cup in Dubai by playing in the Middelburg 90th Anniversary Tournament this Saturday.


A national squad of 24 players will be named early in November to attend the Springbok Sevens training camp at the University of Stellenbosch and it looks like three Ikeys will be in the mix. 

Two of them are experienced Sevens campaigners Mpho Mblyozo and Paul Delport and the third is young Ikeys flanker Kyle Brown, who has had a great season, with an exceptional Varsity Cup.

The provisional SA Sevens squad to travel to Middelburg and Singapore are:

Mpho Mbiyozo, Paul Delport, Marius Schoeman, Schalk van der Merwe, Frankie Horne, Renfred Dazel, Shaun Davids, Mzwandile Stick, Howard Noble, Ryno Benjamin, Thabo Mamojele, Ridwaan de Bruin, Sampie Mastriet, Cornell Hendricks.
