The BlitzBokke have hit the ground running in Moscow in preparation for the IRB Rugby World Cup Sevens, which will be held at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital.

The men’s tournament will be played from Friday to Sunday, with South Africa facing Scotland, Japan and Russia in their pool.

Springbok Sevens coach Paul Treu was pleased after his full squad completed an attack session with great tempo and zest on Wednesday.

“I am happy with the effort today,” Treu said. “There is a good energy amongst the players and it is clear that their focus is on the task at hand.

“We will have to manage them well in the next day or two to ensure they are mentally prepared when we face Russia in our opening match of the tournament.”

Treu was all smiles as Cheslin Kolbe and Seabelo Senatla showed energy and no ill-effects from their long journey from France following the completion of the IRB Junior World Championship on Sunday.
