Kenya Rugby Team Shujaa Falls To South Africa In Vancouver Series Final

Kenya failed to continue with their impressive run at the Vancouver Series, Canada as they lost to a strong South African team in the final match. South Africa defeated Shujaa 5-38 to clinch the gold. The match was played early Sunday morning at the BC place.

Shujaa had finished second from Pool A behind South Africa. On their way to the finals, Kenya managed to beat USA in the quarterfinals by the exact scoreline that they lost to in the Tokyo Olympics. Kenya revenged their earlier 19-14 loss to USA.

In the semifinals, Kenya managed to brush aside Ireland to reach the finals against South Africa. South Africa had won 33-14 against Shujaa and Kenya was eyeing a revenge as South Africa targeted beating Shujaa for the second time in the Vancouver Series.

South Africa capitalised on Kenya's mistakes and ended up punishing them. Daniel Taabu scored Shujaa's only try but failed to convert it. Kenya claimed the second spot as they lost to South Africa 5-38.
