No fewer than seven UCT rugby players featured in the International Rugby Board Sevens World Series in George on 5 to 6 December, including new England cap Mathew Turner. Three Ikeys players - Kyle Brown (in picture), Mpho Mbiyozo and Paul Delport - turned out for the Springbok team that won the tournament with a 12-7 victory over New Zealand. It was the first time South Africa had won the IRB tournament at home, and also the first time that they had put two successive wins together after triumphing in Dubai a week earlier. UCT was also well represented in the United States Sevens team, with current Ikeys captain Jonathan 'JJ' Gagiano, Dallen Stanford and Matt Hawkins donning the US' stars and stripes.
