About Effort and control key for Bok Women’s Sevens

Even though this weekend’s HSBC SVNS Vancouver at BC Place will be most of the Springbok Women’s Sevens squad members’ first time playing, their effort and skill application are not inexperienced.
And when they face Ireland and New Zealand in group play on the first day in Vancouver, the players need to understand that they have power over what occurs on the pitch, says Zintle Mpupha, co-captain of the Springbok Women’s Sevens.
“We’re not accustomed to these circumstances; the pitch is different and it’s quite cold, but we have no control over those things,” Mpupha remarked.

This coming weekend, we are in charge of our effort and how we use our skill set. We will be able to produce a competitive effort if both are completed successfully.

“The team has a positive vibe. There is a positive energy throughout the team since we know what we want to accomplish. This weekend is another opportunity for the group to demonstrate their desire to keep getting better.

According to Mpupha, the only way to keep becoming better is to play for the top teams, and Ireland and New Zealand have just that.

New Zealand leads the series, although Ireland won their maiden HSBC SVNS crown in Perth last month. Despite a very tight matchup in Dubai, the Springbok Women’s Sevens had not defeated the Black Ferns in their past six games.

“We haven’t played Ireland yet, but they looked strong in Perth, so that will be a good opportunity as well,” Mpupha remarked.

We were well-prepared for this one since we completed a ton of study on them and saw a ton of video of their play. We have a strategy, and I think we can defeat Ireland if we trust the system and the game plan.
