The Springbok Sevens team arrived in the city on Monday and Powell expressed his excitement with the tournament a couple of days away.
“Preparation wise it was key for us to get the guys fresh again and almost get that desire back to be successful,” said Powell shortly after their arrival.
“It is a tough season in that we only have two and a half weeks between tournaments. The guys are still struggling to get over the jetlag from the previous tournaments before they had to get on the plane to get to Hong Kong.
“We tried something new by resting the guys a bit more, so hopefully we got the balance right between rest and preparing and conditioning them for the tournament.”

Most important, it regards something we have always known, but have struggled to prove: the rich and celebrated hide their money in secret offshore tax shelters. Welcome to one of the biggest stories of our time. And while you’re settling in, try guessing which famous South African family immediately pops up in the files? By RICHARD POPLAK.
Here’s a booming salvo from the vast global digi-mocracy we were promised by the earliest of the internet’s Utopians: Clive Khulubuse Zuma is a big fat scumbag. Oh, I’m aware that this was common knowledge before some unbelievably heroic soul snagged 2.4 terabytes of filth from the servers of a Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca.
