Kenya Sevens captain Oscar Ouma says they are feling nice to be back to Singapore 7s for the eighth round of the 2017/18 HSBC World Sevens Series.

Ouma spoke to World Sevens Media on Tuesday saying the 2016 memories, where Kenya 7s won her first cup, make them to go for more. 

"We are feeling nice, getting back here; for the guys who were in the final here it's pretty exciting. Being in two finals in the previous two legs hoping we can replicate the 2016 perfoamnce and hopefully win it."

Asked how they did it against Fiji in 2016, the Top Fry Nakuru loose forward said:

"Looking back at 2016 for the guys who are here its all about brotherhood and playing for the man next to you giving it your all hardwork and dedication. That's what the guys did and won the tournament."

Kenya Sevens has reached Vancouver 7s and Hong Kong 7s finals but losing both to Fiji and Ouma says they need to go an extra mile in Singapore.

"Just putting in the hardwork and never giving up always having the believe we can go the extra mile and win it hopefully we get to the final here."

On whether the 2016 win motivates them in Singapore, Ouma adds it's always a good place to play and bring good memories.

"Defintely it has a sentimental value to the team, winning our first tourrnament here. It brings good memories, it's a good place to play."

Kenya Sevens is seeded second for Singapore 7s to play USA, France and England in pool B. 

Singapore is the eighth of the 10-stop series, with the London and Paris legs still to come. South Africa lead the standings with 126 points, with Fiji just three points behind. 

New Zealand are the only other possible contender, but their 107-point total means a charge for the series title must start here in Singapore.
