Shujaa top open London7s against Ireland

Shujaa, the national rugby7s team head coach Damian McGrath will be set to redeem his image at the London sevens series this weekend.

After dismal performance at the Toulouse last weekend, Kenya Sevens will open the meet against Ireland, the last meeting finalist.

Shujaa will face Ireland at 12:16 pm in pool B before taking on Argentina at 3pm before playing the final pool match against South Africa at 6:08 pm.

The Blitzbokke have won the two meetings between the two teams this season, 31-19 in Dubai and 26-5 in Singapore, and will want to bounce back from a disappointing Toulouse performance, where they failed to reach the Main Cup quarters alongside powerhouses New Zealand.

Shujaa won only one group match at the Toulouse leg, beating Wales 19-14. They lost 29-5 to Fiji and 38-14 to France to drop to the classification matches where matters went from bad to worse. Here, they lost 24-12 to Scotland and 28-12 to Japan to finish 13th.
