Springbok Sevens playmaker Justin Geduld will return to the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series for the first time in two years after being named in the Blitzboks squad to contest the two forthcoming tournaments in Malaga and Seville in Spain later this month.

Geduld’s inclusion is one of five changes made to the squad for the first World Series event at Estadio Ciudad de Malaga, where South Africa have been included in the same pool as England, Fiji and Scotland. The experienced playmaker will return from injury alongside Sako Makata, Dewald Human, Mfundo Ndhlovu and Darren Adonis.

Geduld last played in a World Series event in Sydney in 2020, while Makata, Adonis and Human featured in the shortened 2021 series, playing in Vancouver and Edmonton, with Human captaining the Blitzboks in the Vancouver event.
