Dry, Gans rejoin Blitzboks ahead of Hamilton 7s

Chris Dry will make a return to the Blitzboks squad at the Hamilton sevens after a 14 month absence through injury replacing Ryan Oosthuizen.

Making a return to the squad is Stedman Gans who last featured for the side last year June in London. He will replace Muller du Plessis who is injured. Selvyn Davids will be making his first appearance in the squad to replace Rosco Specman who has joined Vodacom Bulls.

Werner Kok, Philip Snyman, Justin Geduld and Branco Du Preez are among the other familiar faces in the South African squad to Hamilton. Selvyn Davids who put up good performances in the first two rounds is also included as he seeks to continue with his meteoric rise to the international scene.

Blitzboks will be looking to improve on their performance from the last round held at Cape Town where they defeated New Zealand 10-5 to seal a third place finish.
