What you need to know:

  • Shujaa succumbed at the death to a try from speedster Perry Baker just seconds after Alvin Marube’s converted try had put his side 21-19 up with an easy try after Captain Nelson Oyoo put him through
  • Coach Innocent “Namcos” Simiyu’s men enjoyed a 14-7 half-time lead thanks to a well-worked try from Billy Odhiambo after some excellent passing with Oyoo on six minutes
  • This result means Shujaa have suffered five consecutive losses in Dubai, stretching back to last weekend’s 19-5 quarter-final defeat at the hands of Fiji

Kenya Sevens' hopes of reaching Main Cup quarter-final at Dubai Sevens II dimmed after throwing away the lead twice in a 24-21 loss to USA in their second Group “B” match on Friday.
