The Blitzbokke won the Sydney Sevens, beating England 29-14, at the Allianz Stadium today.
This win, their third in the 2016/17 World Rugby Sevens Series, also extended their lead in the overall series, with the Blitzboks (85) now 17 points in front of England (68), with Fiji (64) and New Zealand (56) further back.
The victory is also the second in as many weeks, after the Blitzboks bagged the Wellington Sevens a week ago.
They won the opening tournament of the current series, in Dubai, back in December last year.
England did manage to edge the Blitzboks in their final pool match yesterday, but a very strong first half by South Africa in the final on Sunday laid the foundation for this win, their first at this tournament, but third in Australia (having won in Adelaide twice before).
South Africa earlier reached their fourth consecutive final in the World Rugby Sevens Series due to wins over the USA in the quarterfinals of the tournament and then knocked out hosts, Australia, in the semifinals.
