RWC 7s: Oyoo on a brace as Kenya sinks Tonga to reach Round of 16

Nelson Oyoo struck twice to aid Kenya to a 19-7 win over Tonga in a Rugby Sevens World Cup pre-round of 16 match staged at the AT&T Park in San Fransisco this Friday 20 July 2018.
Shujaa will face Scotland in the round of 16 at 5:03am Saturday and a win will secure progression to the cup quarters where South Africa, Chile or Ireland awaits.
Tonga draws first blood
Tonga opened the scoring after Fine Tokai went over for a converted try to hand his side a 7-0 advantage before Nelson Oyoo responded with a five pointer as Tonga took a two point lead to the breather.
Oyoo would seal his brace after receiving a pass from Samuel Oliech before beating his opponent for pace to dot down between the sticks.
A move initiated by Jeffrey Oluoch from Kenya’s half allowed Eden Agero to offload the ball to Collins Injera who crossed the chalk for a converted try to seal the win for Kenya.
