South Africa s Bryan Habana L v Italy

Crowd-pleaser: Bryan Habana

Global stars Bryan Habana and Schalk Brits have been named in South Africa's Sevens squad for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Habana, the prolific try-scorer currently plying his trade with European and Top 14 champions Toulon, is a fans' favourite in his native land, while Brits of Saracens is known for pace, ball skills and a free-ranging style out of keeping with the traditional hooker mould.

The duo will be joined by Cornal Hendricks, who makes his official Springobk debut against Wales on Saturday, as well as several household Super Rugby names: Stormers youngster Cheslin Kolbe and Lions skipper, Warren Whiteley both feature alongside renowned sevens specialist Cecil Afrika.
