Kenya’s 2018 stellar form continued on Saturday as the side staged a 22-19 stunning win over current series leaders Fiji at the Paris Sevens.

The boys, led by Innocent Simiyu recovered from an earlier 24-5 loss to New Zealand thus reviving their chances of qualifying for the quarter finals.

Fiji had earlier in the morning beaten Samoa 35-12 and the result now throws Pool A wide open with the final matches expected  to be a tight battle for the quarter final slot.

Kenya will next face Samoa at 7:52 PM while New Zealand will take on Fiji to determine Pool A standings.
