Hacjivah Dayimani has been withdrawn from the Springbok Sevens squad for this weekend#39;s HSBC Cape Town Sevens at the Cape Town Stadium after suffering a flare-up of a previous ankle injury at training on Tuesday.

Springbok Sevens coach Neil Powell said the long-term welfare of the player was paramount.

Hacjivah has a full season of rugby ahead of him next year and his recovery towards that is more important than our short-term goals for this weekend, so there is no sense in risking him,rdquo; said Powell.

Dayimani will be replaced by Impi Visser, who played in all 10 tournaments of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series last season. Powell will name his 12-man squad for the tournament on Thursday.
