He also wishes he could hit low stingers off the tee like Tiger Woods.

Rugby Africa President Abdelaziz Bougja says the continent has strong teams that can win the Sevens World Cup, which will be held this weekend in San Francisco, USA. "But we are not scared and the boys are upbeat and looking forward to go and prove to the world that they are good enough", added Onyango, a former Kenya worldwide.

United States-based Shingirai Hlanguyo, who is on an athletics scholarship at Carlifonia State University and the Matabeleland Warriors duo of Nelson Madida and Tarisai Mugariri are the only players in the squad yet to feature on the HSBC World Sevens Series Circuit.

"It's a different proposition to what we are used to", Powell told KweséESPN "It's straight knockout".

The Namibian team struggled against more experienced sides, like South Africa, Australia and France and only managed to end the tournament in fourth place, after losing their 3rd spot play-off game against France 19 - 5. 9 to 24 contest the first round.

Serevi's vision came true and, while the World Cup may not return to Hong Kong for some time as World Rugby target emerging markets, the little master will long remember the days when Fiji reigned supreme at the spiritual home of sevens. "They will learn from each other", said Simiyu, Sunday in Nairobi. They are certainly the sort of team who can shock the Blitzboks. We are only playing in the second round - seeds one to eight - and we have to make sure that we have momentum and self-belief before we start.

"We must bring our "A" game from the first match to the last. We want the guys to get their hands on the ball and get a few metres in the legs just to settle the nerves".
