No respite for Kenya

NAIROBI, Kenya, February 18 – With barely enough time to catch their breath from their last tour, the Kenya Sevens team now have to plot Fiji’s downfall when they face the former world champions in Adelaide next month.Benjamin Ayimba’s side will take on the Wellington champions in Pool C that also includes Wales and Papua New Guinea.

Kenya are yet to face any of these countries this season a fact which will make the Safaricom Sevens champions approach the Adelaide mission with caution.

Humphrey Kayange and company reached the main cup semis in Las Vegas last weekend and bowed out at the plate semi stage a fortnight earlier in Wellington.

Fiji were triumphant at Wellington with their usual dazzling display and are currently third on the International Rugby Board (IRB) Sevens series standings with 68 points.

World champions Wales are ninth with 18 points as they continue struggling to live up to their status as sevens world champions while PNG are still trying to find their feet in the sevens sphere.

Full draw:

Pool A: New Zealand, Argentina, Scotland, Tonga
Pool B: Samoa, South Africa, France, Japan
Pool C: Fiji, Kenya, Wales, PNG
Pool D: England, Australia, USA, Niue
