Springbok Sevens captain Kyle Brown was withdrawn from the South African squad to play in the Glasgow Sevens next weekend as he has not fully recovered from the concussion sustained in Hong Kong.

Brown was replaced by loose forward Shaun Adendorff. The 12-man squad departs on Monday afternoon for the United Kingdom.

The Glasgow and London (10-11 May) tournaments are the last two of the Sevens World Series which consists of nine rounds. South Africa are currently placed second and seven points behind leaders New Zealand on the log.

South Africa suffered their first Cup quarterfinal exit of the season in Hong Kong against Australia.

Injury robbed the team of several players on the last day of that tournament, but they still displayed great character and a huge fighting spirit to win the Plate Final against Wales.

Prior to their Hong Kong Cup exit, the Springbok Sevens were in excellent form and appeared in five consecutive Cup Finals. They are currently seven points behind log leaders New Zealand.

South Africa: Chris Dry, Philip Snyman, Frankie Horne, Jamba Ulengo, Werner Kok, Shaun Adendorff, Branco du Preez, Stephan Dippenaar, Justin Geduld, Mark Richards, Albertus Smith, Seabelo Senatla.
