Blitzboks’ Dewald Human eyes redemption in Hong Kong Sevens comeback


After a challenging period on the sidelines, Dewald Human is eager to make his mark once again as he rejoins the Springbok Sevens squad for the upcoming Hong Kong leg of the HSBC SVNS series.

Reminiscing on his previous triumph in the Far East in 2018, where he led a youthful Blitzboks team to claim a remarkable third place finish, Human is fueled with determination and excitement.

Reflecting on the memorable achievement of securing bronze in Hong Kong three years ago, Human acknowledges the significance of returning to such a special venue.

With memories of past successes driving him forward, he is determined to showcase his skills and leadership both on and off the field.

Having recovered from an injury sustained in December, Human is acutely aware of the fierce competition within the squad and the importance of delivering performances worthy of the jersey and the country. He embraces his role as a leader within the team, recognizing the responsibility it entails.

With Hong Kong holding a revered place in the hearts of rugby sevens enthusiasts worldwide, Human acknowledges the challenges that lie ahead.

The quest for gold has remained elusive for the South Africans, but Human is undeterred by the daunting task, fueled by the collective determination of the squad.

As the Blitzboks gear up for the tournament, Human echoes the sentiments of his captain, Selvyn Davids, regarding the seamless transition under interim head coach Philip Snyman.

With a clear focus on finishing among the top eight in the world series, Human emphasizes the importance of belief, performance, and unwavering commitment to the jersey and the country.

With two tournaments remaining in the series, Human is determined to give his all, knowing that if the squad can deliver on their potential, success will inevitably follow.

As they prepare to take on the best in the world, Human and the Blitzboks are ready to leave it all on the field in pursuit of victory in Hong Kong.
