Tournament favourites and hosts, Blue Bulls, were crowned 2012 SARU Interprovincial Sevens champions at Loftus in Pretoria on Saturday.

The Blue Bulls lifted the crown with a comprehensive 28-0 win over Western Province. The Pretoria women qualified for the final after beating the Golden Lions 47-0 and then defeating KZN 26-0 in the last four.

Blue Bulls centre Marithy Pienaar was the standout player and thoroughly deserves her Player of the Tournament accolade. Shona-Leah Weston, Cindy Cant and Mapume Maseko also impressed for the Blue Bulls women.

Meanwhile, Boland won their Plate final 21-7 against Free State, after thrashing the Valke 38-7 in the quarter-finals, where they overcame a determined South-Western Districts 17-7.
