Kenya Exit Paris Sevens After Plate Semifinal Loss to Australia

A 7-26 plate semifinal loss to Australia saw Kenya exit the Paris Sevens with 10 HSBC Sevens World Series points in the bag. The Aussies dominated the fixture from gun to tape,  Con Foley helped himself to a first half brace against a tiring Kenyan defence. It looked like the Singapore champions' race is run although their supporters still gave it their all.

Australia would go wide,Ed Jenkins sprinting through a gaping hole in the Kenya defence to run in his side's third try from 25 metres as they took a 21-0 lead into the break.

Kenya started the second half in much better fettle following the introduction of Robert Aringo as a half-time replacement and they deservedly get the first try of the second half through Billy Odhiambo

Kenya couldnt get out of their own 22 as the clock run down and Australia eventually forcde a penalty at the breakdown. The ball went through the hands from left to right and Henry Hutchison dived over in the corner to confirm the win.

Kenya had earlier bowed out of cup contention, falling to a 5-24 cup quarterfinal defeat to hosts France.
