Fiji forces kenyan Shujaas to settle for silver after a grueilling battle at the world rugby sevens final cup, Canada


Brave Kenya Sevens settled for silver and 19 points for the World Rugby Sevens Series when they gallantly lost to Fiji 32-12 in the main Cup final of Canada Sevens at BC Place in Vancouver on Monday morning.

Tries from William Ambaka and Samuel Oliech might failed to spur Kenya to their second ever Cup victory in the Series but reaching the final exceeded their expectations.
The two teams were meeting for the second time in the final, marking their 37th meeting in the Series.

However, it is the Olympic champions who extended their dominance with their 34th win over the Kenyans as they became the only team to win two events this season.

Fiji won the New Zealand Sevens where they beat Dubai Sevens champions South Africa 24-17 in the final.
Fiji and Kenya met the last time in the final during Singapore Sevens in 2016 where Kenya claimed its maiden victory, beating the Fijians 30-7.
