Dubai7s: Shujaa collects ten points, finishes 7th

Shujaa, the Kenya Sevens national team collected ten points in the opening HSBC World Sevens series in Dubai to finish 7th overall.

Kenya team lost 19-12 to Australia during the fifth semi final match as Australia came from down to win.

The Kenyan opponents made the first try through Brandon Quinn who played Tim Anstee through but Shujaa’s Brian Tanga then broke free and offloaded the ball to Wanyama.

Wanyama collected the ball from the ruck to score, and Samuel Oliech converted for 7-5 lead at the break.

Lachie Anderson cashed in on Shujaa’s poor response on the kick-off and sped off for a try, and Matthew Hood stretched Australia’s lead to 19-7. A last-ditch effort by Oyoo proved too late for Shujaa, who now shift focus to the next leg of the Series in Cape Town next weekend.

Shujaa blew up their chances of making the Cup semi-finals when they squandered a 12-7 first half lead to go down to New Zealand 14-12 in the main Cup quarterfinals. Samuel Oliech converted Eden Agero’s try before failing to convert his own try as Shujaa overturned All Blacks’ lead to break for the drinks 12-7 ahead.

No sooner had New Zealand taken the conversion than Kenya struck at the kick-off, Oliech proving a perfect provider to Agero who crossed the line.

Agero converted to level before Oliech’s try put Kenya ahead 12-7 at the drinks.

Kenya held on to possession well in the second half but failed to get out of their own half. William Ambaka bullied his way through to get a penalty from infringement, but New Zealand put in a huge defensive workout to swing the tide against Kenya, who eventually wilted as Scott Curry claimed a turnover
