Kenya 7s were handed a reality check by Argentina on Sunday, losing 45-7 in the final of the second leg of the Madrid 7s.
It was a fourth successive loss for Kenya against the Los Pumas, who also outwitted them twice in last weekend’s first leg.
Meanwhile, Shujaa’s women counterparts, the Kenya Lionesses, posted an improvement from last weekend as they featured in the final, losing to Russia.
Shujaa’s indiscipline proved costly as they were temporarily reduced to six men after Billy Odhiambo was sent to the sin bin.
The Argentines were quick in utilising their numerical advantage with Marcos Moneta scoring two quick fire tries, both converted by Gaston Revol to give his side a healthy advantage.
A series of mistakes by Innocent Simiyu’s men allowed Argentina to extend their lead further through Rodrigo Etchart before Joaquin De La Vega scored two tries either side of the half-time break.
Vincent Onyala put some respectability on the scoreline after slicing through a host of Argentina players to score between the sticks before Etchart returned to the score sheet with an unconverted try.
Moneta completed the rout after grounding his own kick for a try that was converted to ensure his side reigned supreme for a second consecutive weekend.
