Kenya beat Wales to qualify for Vancouver ninth-place semis

Kenya 7s have proceeded to Vancouver 7s ninth-place semi-finals following a 28-0 win over Wales at BC place on Sunday.

Paul Feeney charges had lost all the opening pool stage matches in this competition. Shujaa needed to redeem themselves against a side they had beaten 29-5 in the Los Angeles 7s 13th place playoffs played at Dignity Park last Sunday.

Unlike the opening three matches, Kenya started off impressively and Vincent Onyala dotted the opening try at the fourth minute. Samuel Oliech added the extras for a 7-0 lead.

Oliech landed Shujaa’s second try a minute later and converted it for a 14-0 lead. Jeff Olouch crossed over for the third try which Collins Injera converted for 21-0 lead at halftime.

Injera scored the lone try of the second half by touching down the fourth try that send Kenya to 28 points after Oliech drilled in his third conversion. Kenya will tackle Scotland in the ninth place semis.
