Janse van Rensburg noted the “high standard of rugby” that they will face in their upcoming fixtures, adding that “it is most definitely not going to be a walk in the park”. Nonetheless, she remains hopeful as their “senior players mixed with some new players makes for a combination that will lead to a consecutive victory”. The team is currently training for their European tour that will see them competing in three tournaments in May namely Stanislas sevens in Nancy, France on 19 and 20 May, Centrale sevens in Paris, France on 22 and 23 May and Benidorm sevens in Benidorm, Spain on 26 and 27 May. “This year, our ultimate goal would be to win the Dubai sevens tournament as this is the biggest tournament that we play in with by far the most spectators.”
