The Australia men’s 7s team will put another competitive show as it is trying to finish on top in Cape Town.
Coach Tim Walsh says they have struggled in Cape Town with ninth, 11th and seventh place finishes in the past three years after generally solid performances in Dubai.
“The second leg always a tough one and a lot of them comes down to recovery. We finished top four in Dubai and making sure we’re staying focused and making sure that we’re a second week team as well as a first-week team.”
