Australia's Lachie Anderson is tackled in the loss to England at the World Rugby Sevens Series in Dubai Martin Dokoupil
First-half tries from Rosko Specman, former World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year Seabelo Senatla and HSBC Player of the Final Kwagga Smith put the Blitzboks 19-0 up against New Zealand, who were chasing their first tournament win since Vancouver in 2016.
South Africa beat New Zealand 24-12 to win the final, while Scotland lost 35-24 to Fiji in the last eight and Wales beat Uganda 26-7 to come 13th overall.
The New Zealand women's sevens team have been handed a stunning loss to US in the quarter-finals of the Dubai Sevens. Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb got the All Blacks Sevens back into the match, but at 19-12 it was the powerful Tim Agaba who closed the game out.
"We kind of let them back into the game", said Snyman.
The Cape Town event will be contested on 9 and 10 December before a break and the resumption of the competition in early 2018.
"It was a long pre-season and a lot of guys went on to play some XVs so it's a new team with some unfamiliar faces".
"We want to focus on our processes and it we leave the result and result doesn't go our way then we're still happy".
It was the ideal start to the 2017/18 season after the success of the past year and the tonic the team needed ahead of this weekend's second tournament in Cape Town. "It's all about making the player next to you look good‚ but NZ made it hard for us‚ especially when we were down to six men".
The Blitzboks breezed through the group stages, beating Uganda, Kenya and Canada.
Rodwell's sin-binning turned the tide again after Ruaridh McConnochie had put England comfortable, with a late France try not converted as Amor's charges held on 14-12.
Senatla ended the weekend with seven tries to take his career tally to 196 in only 173 matches‚ which moved him into the top five Series try-scorers of all time.
