Kenya to lock horns with Kiwis

NAIROBI, Kenya, March 27 – Kenya face New Zealand in the main cup quarter finals of the Hong Kong Sevens on Sunday morning at 8.17 am Kenyan time.Benjamin Ayimba’s side lost its final Pool F match to South Africa 21-7 in a one sided affair punctuated by elementary errors from the Kenyans that were punished by the Springboks.

Earlier Kenya secured a vital 24-0 win over Zimbabwe, the margin ensuring that they manage to remain in contention for the main cup.

Ryno Benjamin put South Africa in the lead after slicing through the middle of Kenya’s defence to score under the posts.

Kenya who were pinned in their 22 for most of their half got one back through captain Humphrey Kayange to tie the game 7-7.

From the kick off, the Boks marched upfield by varying the attack between going wide and running through the narrow channels.

With several defenders committed, the ball was spun left to Chris Dry to cross over putting the Boks 14-7 ahead at halftime.

Branco du Preez closed shop for South Africa with a try in the opening minute of the second half.

Unlike Kenya, New Zealand unsurprisingly dominated proceedings in Pool B with three wins out of three over France, Scotland and Chinese Taipei.
