Kenya sevens head coach Innocent Simiyu hopes the side can build on from their start of the 2017/18 HSBC sevens world series season last week in Dubai when they line up for the second stop of the series in Cape Town, South Africa this weekend.

Shujaa kicked off their season with a seventh spot finish which earned them 10 points after losing out to Australia in the fifth place semi-final, following a narrow loss to New Zealand’s All Blacks in the quarters.

Shujaa arrived in the South African tourist city of Cape Town on Monday and will have a whole week to work on the errors from the first series and hope for improvement in a tournament they reached the semi-finals last time out.

The Kenyan boys will battle out with hosts and defending champions South Africa, France and Russia in Group A.They played South Africa in Dubai where the match ended in an embarrassing 48-5 defeat and they now aim to consistently perform to their full potential and better last year’s cup quarter final performance.
