Kenya 7s is in pool B of the third round of 2020 HSBC World Sevens Series, Hamilton 7s , going down this weekend in New Zealand.

Kenya will play South Africa, England and Japan in what will be one of the toughest tournaments at the World sevens series.

Unlike other legs, the January 25-26 tournament in New Zealand will have a new format leaving little room for error in pool play. 

With quarter-finals dropped from the schedule, only the winners from the four men's pools will advance straight to the semi-finals.

Every game counts with this new format.

Shujaa kick-off the Hamilton 7s against England at 2.41am EAT on Saturday Jan 25.

Their second game will be against Japan at 8.08am before taking on South Africa at 2.13am on Sunday morning.

Pool matches will conclude at 3.41am on Sunday followed immediately by cup semis at 6.20am.

Cup final is set for 10.56am on Sunday.
