South Africa’s Springbok women’s sevens prep for intense showdown in Los Angeles


South Africa Springbok Women’s Sevens team is gearing up to face another round of intense competition on the HSBC SVNS circuit as they head into the fifth tournament of the season in Los Angeles.

Co-captain Mathrin Simmers emphasized the team’s focus on improving their performances, especially against top-tier opponents like New Zealand, Fiji, and Brazil, whom they’ll meet in Pool A.

Simmers highlighted the challenge of playing back-to-back tournaments but expressed the team’s readiness to embrace every opportunity to compete against the best. With the squad being the only new team in the 2024 season, they are steadily adapting to the demands of the circuit.

Coach Renfred Dazel echoed Simmers’ sentiments, emphasizing the importance of managing player fatigue and staying focused on the game plan. Despite experiencing jet lag in Vancouver, the team has adjusted to the time zone for their upcoming matches in Los Angeles.

Looking ahead to their pool opponents, Dazel emphasized the need for continuous improvement. While acknowledging the strength of teams like New Zealand, Fiji, and Brazil, he expressed confidence in the team’s ability to stay true to their style of play and secure positive results.

Simmers, set to play in her 18th world series tournament, brings invaluable experience to the team. Her leadership and extensive international exposure will be crucial as the Springbok Women’s Sevens aim to make their mark in Los Angeles.

With a focus on executing the basics and staying composed under pressure, the Springbok Women’s Sevens are determined to elevate their performance and compete fiercely against their opponents.

As they embark on this next leg of their journey, the team is poised to showcase their resilience and determination on the global stage.
