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

IRB Sevens Player of the Year Afrika was forced to sit out the Dubai tournament with a rib injury but he has now been declared fit to play.

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.

South Africa: Chris Dry, Boom Prinsloo, Frankie Horne, Kyle Brown (c), Chase Minnaar, Cornal Hendricks, Branco du Preez, Mark Richards, Cecil Afrika, Steven Hunt, Paul Delport, Bernado Botha.
