Kenya Sevens into Cup quarters in Dubai
29 November 2013, 18:18
Nairobi - Kenya are through to the Dubai Sevens main cup quarter finals with a
match to spare, beating France 14-5 in their second Pool A fixture.
It was a cagey opening, France seeing most of the possession but
unable to breach the Kenyan defence. Collins Injera would conjure up a
try out of nothing, Biko Adema converting to give the team a 7-0 lead
heading into half time.
Upon resumption, Kenya retained possession from a scrum down, playing
down the right channel. Horace Otieno would race clear to score under
the posts, Adema converting to make it 14-0.
France would go in pursuit of points and it seemed they were going to
exit this match scoreless until Julien Candelon scored at the death,
full time score 14-5.
Kenya had earlier started their Dubai
Sevens campaign with a hard fought 10-7 Pool A result over Portugal on Friday morning.
