 Kenya’s all-time leading try scorer Collins Injera was named the eighth HSBC player of the final after his two tries helped Shujaa to a 30-7 triumph over defending champions Fiji at the eighth round of the Rugby Sevens World Series in Sunday’s Singapore 7s Cup final

Injera collected the award after he helped his side to a historic first-ever Cup final, having earlier booked his side’s place in the final with a drop goal penalty.

The tries were his 224th and 225th career tries, leaving him just five short of Santiago Gomez Cora’s record, aged 32 from Argentina who has netted 230 tries., and six from beating it.

Shujaa’s Collins Injera had previously moved into second place of the top try scorers in the world after scoring his 221 try at Vancouver IRB series in Canada.

It was a memorable occasion for the vice captain and Kenya, having never won a Cup before on the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series since their inaugural in 1999.

Injera’s brother Humphrey Kayange scored his 150th and Kenya’s 1,500th sevens try in their 24-21 victory over Russia in the Las Vegas IRB series in US, on March 5, 2016.

Having famously signed the TV camera when scoring his 200th in London last year,Injera is known for his speed, power and confidence and soon will beat the Argentinian to be all time scorer. .
