All 16 Sevens teams pay tribute to Nelson Mandela

All 16 teams and officials at the South Africa Sevens paid tribute to Nelson Mandela, at the venue named after the great man, the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium. We shared a photo of it on Twitter and Facebook at the weekend, but here is a video showing the moment, plus a bit of a tribute.

It's really strange, I recall NM wearing the springbok shirt, & I recall the SA's playing songs during the breaks in the world cup matches ................. but most of all I remember the sight of those SA black women brushing the water off the pitch & their supervisors instructing them.

Then in the final i recall the way that Jonah Lomu was targeted by Andrews & co....for some cheap shots....

strange images to remember, but it's these that stick in my mind more than the winning drop goal. Believe me or not, I don't care, but it's the truth.
