CT leg of Sevens Series 'a success'
Cape Town stadium played host to the CT leg of the series which was attended by over 100,000 people.
CAPE TOWN - The HSBC Sevens World Series Cape Town leg has cemented itself on the Mother City's sporting calendar.
Cape Town stadium played host to the inaugural leg of the series which was attended by over 100,000 spectators over the past two days.
Spectators were not left disappointed during the two day rugby extravaganza, as the Springbok Sevens blazed to victory in the final in front of a 52,000 strong crowd last night.
South Africa beat Argentina 29-14 and won the trophy event in front of a boisterous crowd.
Some of the fans say it was a world class event.
"I'm happy, it's great fun for the family, great fun for everyone. It's a big success because we know where the beer tents are and South Africa is winning.
But some were not entirely satisfied.
"Standing in a queue for half an hour just to get drinks, there's a lot of people to cater for, but the fact that people ran out of the food is not cool."
The Blitzbokke now join Fiji at the top of the World Series log.
