Host South Africa got off to a flying start on Day One of the Port Elizabeth leg of the ORB Sevens World Series.
Round Three of the World Series saw the BlitzBokke demolish Samoa 29-7 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in PE.
There were no surprises in the first round of matches, with Fiji, South Africa and France the most impressive.
New BlitzBok captain Frankie Horne said it was a "mindset change" that got them the impressive win over their Pacific Island rivals.
"We lost to Samoa last week by three points, and they went on to win the tournament," Horne said, adding: "So [it was] just a mindset change, and working on all our niggles this week and it worked for us today [Saturday].
"The crowd is amazing but you can't get to hyped up by the crowd but we are sapping energy from then and it works for some of the guys.
"He [Cecil Afrika] is just phenomenal. He reads the game like he was born on the Sevens pitch. He has a presence on the field to other teams."
We bring you all the Day One drama!
