Speedster Seabelo Senatla scored seven tries in three matches as the Springbok Sevens swiftly moved into the quarterfinals of the Commonwealth Games Sevens on Saturday, unbeaten without conceding a point in their Pool B games at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow.
Kyle Brown and his team mates will be hoping to add to the growing medal tally of Team SA at the Games, but they must first overcome Games hosts Scotland at 14h11 on Sunday.

In front of a capacity 90 000 spectators at Ibrox, the South Africans blitzed both Trinidad and Tobago (36-0) and the Cook Islands (50-0) before ending the day by beating a tough Kenyan side 20-0.

Senatla and full Springbok international Cornal Hendricks both scored three tries each in the runaway win over the Cook Islands.

Cecil Afrika and Branco du Preez also scored tries against Kenya with Kwagga Smit finishing off the win with a try near the end.

Kenya have the daunting task of facing Commonwealth Games champions New Zealand, while in other quarterfinals action Australia face Wales and Samoa take on England.

The games will be live on both SS7 and SSHD7 on Sunday.
