The South Africa Sevens Academy stormed to the Societe Generale Singapore Cricket Club International Rugby Sevens title on Sunday, beating British outfit Penguins 36-5 in the final to cap a perfect tournament.

Led by national captain Kyle Brown, the Springboks were a class apart throughout the competition, winning all four group matches by at least 24 points.

Defending champions Borneo Eagles had been knocked out in the semi-finals by the Penguins, who last won the Ablitt Cup in 2010 with a squad led by New Zealand star winger Nehe Milner-Skudder.

With the haze staying away, over 8,000 fans enjoyed the hard-hitting action across three days at the Padang.

France's development team beat their English counterparts 19-10 to clinch the second-tier Shield trophy.

Papau New Guinea's Interoil Rais won the Plate title, while the Bowl crown went to NS Silverbacks of Australia.
