Kenya stage big win in San Diego

humphreykayange_6020_sq_mediumKenya beat New Zealand for the first time in 14 attempts to proceed with them and the rest of the top seeds to the Cup quarter finals at the USA Sevens in San Diego.

Los Teros of Uruguay gave the USA Sevens its first shock result by upsetting the Kenyans 14-12 in their opening match, but the African side performed the ultimate recovery job in beating the Kiwis at the end of the day.

The tournament in San Diego provides 15 of the teams in action – all bar Mexico – with a final chance to prepare ahead of the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Dubai at the beginning of March.
