The 2017/18 HSBC world sevens series reached a thrilling climax in Paris on Sunday 10 June with Kenya sealing an 8th place finish on the overall standings.
The side made history by surpassing the 100 point mark for the first time after managing a total of 104 points.This beat the 2012/13 record of 99 points during Mike Friday’s reign.
Shujaa opened their campaign in Dubai, December 2017 where they crashed out at the cup quarter finals before bagging 7 points.
The second leg of the series took the side to South Africa for the Cape Town 7s.They would be without the key duo of Collins Injera and Dennis Ombachi who had been sidelined by different injuries picked at the opening leg in the United Arab Emirates.
A far from ideal showing would see Kenya 7s fail to make it to the cup quarter finals and after losing the Challenge Trophy quarters, they would settle for a 13th place finish, amassing a paltry 3 points in the process.
2018 started on a good note for Shujaa as they made three consecutive cup quarter finals in Sydney, Hamilton and Las Vegas. In the Australian city of Sydney, the men in red garnered 10 points before managing 12 in New Zealand. A 7th place finish in Las Vegas earned them 10 points.
A spirited Kenyan side then made two cup finals in Vancouver and Hong Kong but lost on both occasions to Fiji.They picked a cumulative total of 38 points from both legs.
They amassed 10 points in Singapore before a 9th place finish in London saw them garner 8.
