Valuable experience picked up by Springbok Women's Sevens

Springbok Women's Sevens coach, Renfred Dazel, will leave Dubai with more boxes ticked than not after his team delivered a much stronger performance on Day Two of the Emirates Airline Dubai Sevens tournament, the first of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Sevens Series, played at The Sevens Stadium, on Friday.

The South Africans bounced back from a disappointing effort on Day One by beating Fiji 17-14 and then took Ireland all the way in the final of the Challenge Trophy, in the end losing 24-7 in a performance much more to the character and effort shown by the team on Day Two of the tournament.
