Kenya Sevens has dropped to Cape Town Challenge trophy quarters after losing two matches on Saturday, December 9, 2017.

Kenya will take on Samoa in the CT quarters at  11.36am, the first match of day two as South Africa awaits Fiji in Cup quarters.

Shujaa went down 26-7 to hosts South Africa in their last match after they had lost 21-14 to France in the first match. They beat Russia 34-0 in the second match meaning they needed to win the last match and hope Russia upsets France but cases went negative.

The first half was a hard-fought stuff between the two African sides but it's the home team who took the lead via two individual tries from Ruhan Nel and Kyle Brown. William Ambaka Ndayara hit back for Kenya.

South Africa ran out comprehensive winners in the second-half, with Philip Snyman and Seabelo Senatla adding their names to the score sheet.

The home nation finished top in Pool A to advance to yet another Cup Quarter-final in Cape Town.
