Kenyan Team #Shujaa Finishes Second at the 2018 Canada Sevens Rugby Tournament

Ouma strikes late to help Kenya 7s beat France 7s in Canada

Kenya who went into Vancouver in eighth place with 45 points were guaranteed at least 19 points for the Series for reaching the final. "All the teams now are very hard to play against, not like before".

The All Blacks Sevens are now second in the standings, 10 points behind South Africa, heading into the sixth round of the series.

Earlier in the day, Fiji edged South Africa 15-12 and Kenya beat the United States 24-19 in the semi-finals.

Kenya opened the scoring after two minutes with a try to Willy Ambaka, the 99th of his World Series career.

Uruguay join Canada in the Challenge Trophy quarter-finals alongside Samoa, Wales, France, Spain, Scotland and Russian Federation.

Kenya found themselves at the back foot when Perry Baker scored two quick tries to give USA, who has just won USA Sevens, a 14-0 lead.

In the other Cup quarters, Australia play South Africa, Fiji take on Argentina while New Zealand play the USA.

However, in an end to end game, two scores from Ruaridh McConnochie, including one at the death through a rolling maul, saw England secure a 21-7 victory over Argentina to top their pool. However, Fiji responded nearly immediately via a Kalione Nasoko converted try.

South Africa claimed the bronze medal after a 29-7 thrashing of the US - who had opted to rest a whole host of stars.

New Zealand went into the second day high in confidence after three good pool wins, including a dominant 33 to 14 win over series leaders South Africa.

In their final match of the day, Canada beat Uruguay 47-5 but just missed out on a place in the quarter-finals after Australia beat the U.S. 31-21 in the closing Pool A contest. South Africa finished second in Pool D after a 21-0 win over Scotland, who fell to Russian Federation in their last match of the day with a closely fought 26-24 margin.
