Sampie Mastriet has no doubt where he wants his flying feet to take him - a permanent place on the wing for the Springboks 15-a-side team. Already identified as a future Super 14 winger for South Africa's Bulls, 19-year-old Mastriet will grace the So Kon Po stage for the first, and probably, last time when he turns out on the wing for the reigning IRB Sevens Series champions, who will be bidding to win their first Cup title in Hong Kong. 'I don't think he will be back next year,' South Africa's sevens coach Paul Treu said. 'He is one of those quality players who we have for one season, if we are lucky, who then move on to the next stage in their careers.' So savour him this weekend, for you could be watching a future star - someone like Fabian Juries or Brent Russell, who first played at the Hong Kong Sevens before moving on to the 15s stage. 'My dream is to play for the Boks one day,' Mastriet said. 'I know many players came and starred here before moving on to play for their countries. I hope I can follow in their footsteps.' Born in Bonnievale, a small town a couple of hours from Cape Town, Mastriet picked up rugby after he won a scholarship to a school in Boland. When he was 17, he was signed by the Blue Bulls. 'I have watched the Hong Kong Sevens many times on TV and seen some of the legends of the game play here. I'm really excited that I'm here now and I hope I can do well,' he said. The Blue Bulls junior was released to the South African sevens squad for only two legs of the series, Adelaide last week and now Hong Kong. He was granted leave so that he could get a feel for an international tournament. 'He was released as they [Blue Bulls] wanted to give him more exposure to international rugby,' Treu said. 'He has got pace and is an aggressive runner and in Adelaide he scored nine tries. 'But we have to see if he can step it up two tournaments in a row.' Treu hopes the Blue Bulls will release him for the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi in October when South Africa try to prise away New Zealand's long grip on that gold medal, which they have won at the past three Games. 'I have told all my guys, Sampie too, that they won't get a better opportunity than the Hong Kong Sevens to showcase their skills. This is where a lot of legends came out and set the scene alight. This is their opportunity now, and maybe four years down the line, they can look back and say, 'That is where I made my mark',' Treu said. South Africa will also be hoping for something special from Mastriet because they are trailing in seventh place, Treu's young and inexperienced team seeing their chance of defending their IRB Sevens Series title fade with a string of below-par performances. 'We have struggled because we are going through a rebuilding phase with a young side. We lost most of the players who figured last season, but that is the nature of sevens,' Treu said. 'We could have opted to bring a few more experienced players, but decided to give youngsters the opportunity and expose them to this pressure.'
