LONDON 7s:Blitzboks call up Academy youngster

South Africas 7s head coach Neil Powell has called up SA Rugby Academy 7s player Marco Labuschagne to link up with the rest of the team in London ahead of the London 7s this weekend
This is after Tim Agaba was ruled out following a knee injury he sustained in Paris last weekend.19-year old Labuschagne has been with the SA rugby 7s Academy since the beginning of the year and was extremely excited to get the call up.
The blitzboks who  won the Paris 7s last weekend as well as the overall series title are in pool A alongside Wales,USA and Kenya.
It is highly expected that coach Powell will hand more playtime to the less capped players in London bearing in mind that the tournament may be a mere formality for them
