Springbok Sevens playmaker Branco du Preez says the national team enjoyed an easy trip to Paris ahead of the second last leg of the 2016-17 World Series.
South Africa head into the Paris Sevens tournament with a 25-point lead on top of the overall standings, with Fiji and England trailing closely.
They will need a strong finish in Paris and London in order to life their first World Series title since the memorable 2008-09 campaign.
Blitzboks scrumhalf Branco du Preez said the team is doing well during their preparations ahead of their first match.
“The trip to Paris was very comfortable because there’s no time difference. This makes everything a whole lot easier for us. We’ve managed to settle in and we’re ready for the week ahead,” said Du Preez.
“I wasn’t in Paris last season, but we’ll be focused on playing good rugby. We will be aiming to be consistent, but we will first worry about the first game against Scotland and take it one match at a time.”
Du Preez added that the players were confident to execute their game plan successfully.
“We won’t worry too much about our opponents. We want to focus on what we want to do. We have great systems in place and we want to go out there and apply it on the field.”
