London 7s Cleat Spotting
Posted: May 14, 2014 at 7:47 pm
New Zealand won their 12th IRB Sevens Series title this last weekend with a win at the London 7s. We’re not saying that their win is a result of their cleats….but you can’t rule out their importance. Here are a few of the cleats used by different players throughout the weekend.
As usual the All Blacks had their fair share of difficult matches but once again came out flawless. Tim Mikkelson was at the heart of the New Zealand side once again. Here he is sporting the adidas Adizero RS7 Pro XTRX SG 4.0 in blue.
South Africa, who finished second in overall 2013-14 standings, took home the Plate in London. Seabelo Senatla was easily the best player on the weekend as he electrified the crowd with 13, that’s right 13, tries. Here he is wearing the Nike Hypervenom Phantom SG Pro in Neo Lime/Poison Green.
England, the homeside, came in third place. They lost to Australia in the semi-finals before beating Fiji in the third place match. It’s not surprise that Fiji and England finished 3rd and 4th respectively in the final standings. Nike were a popular choice among their players. Dan Bibby can be seen wearing the Nike Mercurial Vapor IX AG Cleats ((Neo Lime/Metallic Silver/Polarized Blue/Total Crimson)
