More by this Author

There was no reprieve for Kenya as their poor run in Dubai 7s continued on Saturday when they lost to Japan 26-19 in the 13th place semi-final clash at Sevens Stadium, United Arab Emirates.

It was Shujaa’s worst ever performance since the Paris 7s leg of the 2016/2017 World Rugby Sevens Series where they collected one point after losing in the semi-final for 13th place.

The results means that Shujaa finished last in the event alongside their continental rivals Zimbabwe, who lost to former World champions Wales 14-10 in the other semi-final for 13th place.

Shujaa lost to Spain 26-19 in Challenge Trophy quarter-final after losing all their Pool “A” matches against Scotland, Fiji and France.

This is the first time Shujaa failed to win a match in many years. It was also the first time Kenya failed to win a match in the pool stage since 2014/2015 season at Dubai, South Africa and Hong Kong Sevens.
