South Africa will be buoyed by the return of Cecil Afrika for their home leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.

Afrika will be joined in the Blitzbokke squad in Port Elizabeth by Boland's Cornal Hendricks, with Renfred Dazel and Robert Ebersohn dropping out.
Having played in the opening two legs of the Series, Ebersohn has been recalled by the Cheetahs as they step up their preparations for the Super Rugby season.
