Werner Kok – South Africa Men’s Rugby Sevens Team

werner kokWerner Kok, the 2015 World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year, earned his vaunted title by leading the 2015 IRB Sevens circuit in tackles completed as a representative of the South Africa National Sevens squad. A member of the gold medal winning 2013 World Games and 2014 Commonwealth games squads, Werner is one of the only South African players to have been a part of both. Typically a center or wing, as is to be expected of the rapid Blitzbokkes, Kok made the transition from union to South African Sevens at the tender age of 20, and is still one of the youngest members of the team at only 23 years.
