RWC over for South Africa
The Blitzbokke had their Rugby World Cup Sevens dream ended on Sunday after losing 12-10 to Fiji in Moscow.
Fiji produced a display of extremely aggressive defence to win the game.
The Blitzbokke had not conceded a point in pool play, during which their exciting runners had been the highlight, but influential captain Kyle Brown was ruled out of the quarter-final after copping a two-match ban for foul play.
But the Fijians hit hard and dominated the breakdown, although Cecil Afrika missed a conversion from wide out after the hooter that would have pushed the game into extra-time.
"It is another disappointing World Cup for us," admitted South Africa coach Paul Treu.
"It is a pity we couldn't do it for South Africa and Madiba, that is why we wanted to win this tournament, but it wasn't meant to be."
