Kenya Sevens has 93 points same with fifth placed USA and only sit back due to points difference. 

Kenya's rise after Singapore 7s was as a result of Argentina's poor performance that saw them pick only two points to drop to 7th with 92 points. 

The French capital will host the final round of the men’s and women’s series on 8-10 June 2018, as the final men’s tournament switches with the London tournament (2-3 June).

After the end of series, the focus will turn to the west coast of the USA on 20-22 July for Rugby World Cup Sevens at the iconic AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants baseball team.
