Cape Town - The Blitzboks have beaten Canada to make it two from two at the London Sevens on Saturday.

The Springbok Sevens side ran in three tries through Ryan Oosthuizen, skipper Philip Snyman and Werner Kok. Branco du Preez landed one conversion.

Meanwhile, Canada could only manage a single try through Harry Jones in the second-half with Nathan Hirayama slotting the conversion.

Earlier in the day, the Blitzboks triumphed over the Russians 31-0 in their opening Pool D clash.
