Blitzboks coach Sandile Ngcobo has slammed his manne’s performances in North America after an 11th-place finish at the Los Angeles Sevens.

South Africa beat Canada to claim 11th place in LA on Sunday, their worst finish so far in the 2024 season.

It followed on another underwhelming showing last weekend in Vancouver, where the Blitzboks also failed to qualify for the Cup quarter-finals.

And Ncgobo says: “It is really frustrating that we can put some excellent performances together, and then lose the next couple of matches.

“Two things are standing out for me; the lack of discipline around the tackle area and the basics not being done well when we need to finish.”

The Springbok Women, though, left LA with their heads held high after recording their best finish so far this season when they placed sixth.

Coach Renfred Dazel says: “We fell away in our last match against France a bit and that was not the way we wanted to finish, but I am very proud of the effort from the squad.”
