Kenya Sevens triumphant start at Sevens World Cup

The Kenya National rugby sevens team Shujaa kickstarted their Rugby Sevens World cup campaign on a resounding note beating Tonga 19-0 in Capetown, South Africa on Friday September 9.  

 Burly forward William Ambaka handed Shujaa the perfect start when he scored their opening try in the third minute against the pacific islanders.

Ambaka sidestepped his opponent after receiving a long pass from teammate Herman Humwa to score in the corner. Sammy Oliech added the extras converting from a difficult angle.

Oliech turned provider when he combined with Nelson Oyoo after a patient buildup. The winger sliced past the Tongan defense to score between the uprights.

Oliech added the 2 extra points to give Kenya a 14-point cushion at the interval. After the break, Vincent Onyala scored Kenya’s third try. Collins Injera who is featuring in his 4th Rugby Sevens World Cup came in as a substitute but he failed to add the extras. 

Kenya progressed to the round of 16 where they will face Argentina at 5.23pm. 

Reflecting after the win, Ambaka one of Kenya’s try scorers said it was momentous to be once again representing the country at the Rugby Sevens World cup after featuring in the 2013 edition in Russia.   

“We executed well, got the three tries. We were also a little bit rusty. That is expected in the first game and we just hope to polish up in the next game. 

Head Coach Damian McGrath expects tougher opposition when they face Los Pumas, “We just need to polish up and execute better because once you get to the big games it’s all about who’s going to execute well and who’s going to work well on and off the ball, both defense and attack. But we just have to take it one game at a time and execute the little things right because they’re the things that make a big difference.”
