A kick and chase by captain Robbie Fergusson saw him collect the ball to score the opening try that tied the scores at 5-5 heading to the break.

From the break, Fergusson handed his side a lead after beating Shujaa’s defence to score at a try that saw them lead 10-5. They held on to the slim lead to finish fifth.

An improvement from first leg

Shujaa made a poor start to the 2021-2022 World 7s Series season managing only an eighth place finish during the first leg last weekend.

Kenya lost twice; against Argentina and USA, before defeating Spain in their Group B encounters before scrapping through to the knockout stage courtesy of best-loser position.
