Rugby: A packed Hong Kong stadium is expected for weekend’s sevens tournament

# Rugby: The Blitzboks and the other eleven teams can expect a packed Hong Kong stadium this weekend for the Chinese territory’s world series tournament. World Rugby says all 120-thousand tickets for the three-day event have been sold. South Africa plays its group matches against Ireland, Samoa and Spain. The Blitzboks, with former sevens captain Philip Snyman their new head coach, hope to improve from their seventh place on the log. They won the season opener in Dubai, but disappointed in the next four tournaments.
