Shujaa, the national rugby sevens team funished last at the HSNC world rugby series opener in Dubal sevens.
The Paul Murunga led charges lost all matches in the United Arab Emirates in the 2018/2019 season. The team registered a poor run when Shujaa lost to Japan 26-19 in the 13th place semi-final clash.
Shujaa collected a point to finish 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 (34-14), Fiji (43-12) and France (21-17).
This was the first time Shujaa failed to win a match in the pool stage since 2014/2015 season at the Dubai, South Africa and Hong Kong Sevens.
The poor run was perhaps a rude welcome for the new Kenya Sevens head coach Murunga to the World Rugby Sevens Series.
