Kenya 7s Win Bronze In Edmonton 7s

On their way to the Bronze medal, Shujaa as they are commonly referred to beat Chile in their opening match by 36 to 5.

In their second pool B match, Kenya brushed off Spain 26-12, before losing to United States of America, 19-14. That loss to USA put Kenya on a collision course with South Africa.

Kenya beat Germany in the quarter-finals by 24 points to 17, before facing South Africa in the Semi-finals. Shujaa proved too slow for the South Africans, who kept on capitalising on the inability by the Kenyan team to hold on to the kick-offs and re-starts, all the while scoring off the Kenyans' mistakes. The game ended 33-5 in favour of the South Africans.

Kenya then faced Canada in the third placed final and won by 33-14, ensuring that they clinched the bronze medal. With that victory, Kenya completed the 2021 HSBC World series at position three, behind Great Britain and series leaders South Africa.
