Kenya sevens lift bowl in Wellington, vow to improve

10 February 2014, 11:31

Nairobi - Kenya ended their Wellington Sevens campaign with a 24-14 win over Scotland in the bowl final at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, New Zealand.

Oscar Ayodi opened Kenya's account with an unconverted try after a minute of play. Skipper Collins Injera doubled Kenya's lead, Biko Adema converting for a 12-0 lead but two converted tries saw Scotland go 14-12 up but Injera struck right at the interval, Kenya taking a 17-14 lead into half time.

Paul Treu's half time pep talk re-ignited fire in Kenya's belly as they had an upper hand in the second half. Biko Adema would convert Horace Otieno's try midway through the half, the Kenyans building a ten point cushion that they held to the end. 

Speaking after the game, Injera said, " It definitely feels great after a day one that was not quite what we wanted. We went back and regrouped. We wanted three wins on day two and got three wins." 

Commenting on Kenya's playing style, Injera said, " Definitely there is a difference from last year. All we have to do is keep adapting and continue ticking the boxes.I know that it will soon come along well."

Talking about his scoring,he said, " It's part of the reason I am on the team, and I thank God that I still have the strength and ability to do it."

Bowl success saw Kenya garner 8 points, their tally for the season rising to 47. 

They ended up in the bowl after finishing third in Pool D, losing 12-24 to Samoa and 0-24 to Australia before beating Tonga 40-7. They beat France 24-7 in the semis, this after a 34-0 quarter final win over Portugal.
