But losing 12-10 to Argentina in the Cup semis‚ meant a bonze medal match against Fiji for the Blitzboks.

However, facing the reigning World Champions they trailed early on from two early blows as Siviwe Sovizwapi and then Cecil Afrika crossed for a 12-0 lead.

"Obviously‚ we will have to improve come Vancouver‚ but our depth was tested very nicely today".
