7’s team sets eyes on Wellington and Sydney legs for success

By Frederick Muoki.

The national rugby sevens team arrived home last night from South Africa where they finished 6th in the Cape Town sevens over the weekend.

The Innocent Simiyu’s team finished 6th after losing 33-21 to Fiji in the 5th place play-off match.

Kenya was knocked out of the main cup quarters by New Zealand before beating Wales in the 5th place semi final match.

Their performance in South Africa was better after registering dismal performance in the first leg in Dubai where they won just two matches against Japan and Canada.

The team now turns their focus on the third and fourth legs of the series which will be held early next year in Wellington and Sydney respectively.

The Kenyan team has been drawn in a Pool “A” at the Wellington Sevens that will be held between the 28th and 29th of next month at the Westpac Stadium, New Zealand.

Kenya has been pooled alongside Cape Town winners England, Argentina and Papua New Guinea who have been invited into the tournament.
