Argentina end Kenya’s unbeaten run at Madrid 7s


A poor second half display by the Kenya men’s national Sevens team saw them suffer a 21-7 loss to Argentina in their fourth match of the Madrid 7s on Sunday. 

It was a result that ended Kenya’s unbeaten run in the competition after the side had earlier claimed comfortable wins over Portugal, Spain and USA.

Against the Argentines, Shujaa fell behind to a Matias Osadczuk try early in the first half after the South Americans had worked the ball brilliantly from left to right.

Argentina were then temporarily reduced to 6 men when veteran Gaston Revol was sent to the sin bin.

Innocent Simiyu’s charges utilised their numerical advantage immediately with Alvin Otieno beating his marker on the wing to score a try that was converted by Tony Omondi.

With the sides level at halftime, Shujaa collapsed in the second half as they failed to build any momentum, allowing Argentina to  extend their lead with their second converted try.

Johnstone Olindi’s handling error deep inside Kenya’s territory was punished by Osadczuk who crossed the whitewash for a try that was converted by Revol.
