Kenya 7s is set to play Canada at 5.36am on Sunday April 7 at the quarterfinals of challenge trophy at the ongoing Hong Kong 7s. 

Kenya lost all three pool matches going down 28-12 to Australia and 36-0 New Zealand on Saturday to add to Friday’s 22-5 defeat to Fiji. 

Australia were unable to secure the wins that they would have wanted to so far in Hong Kong but they started at quite a pace against Kenya in their last pool match going 21-0 up. 

Bush Mwale and Jonstone Olindi went for Kenya in the defeat to Australia who ran in four tries. 

Highlights from Hong Kong 7s include England, South Africa, Fiji and France winning all three pool matches. 

New Zealand, USA, Argentina and Samoa sealed second place in their groups and Sunday’s Cup quarter-finals will see South Africa v USA, Fiji v Argentina, England v Samoa, France v New Zealand. 

Dan Norton became new all-time leading Cathay Pacific/HSBC Hong Kong Sevens try scorer on Friday.
