Kenya 7s suffered a 28-12 defeat to Ireland in the Hong Kong 7s opener played on Friday at Hong Kong Stadium.

Shujaa started off impressively taking the game to Ireland and their attack paid off two minutes into the game when Kevin Wekesa released a pass off a ruck to Billy Odhiambo. Odhiambo dived over from close range for the first try of the match.

Ireland response 

Ireland would gain possession after the restart and retained the ball and after stringing 24 passes, they scored a try through Niall Comerford and Mark Roche converted for a 7-5 lead.

Ireland took a 14-7 lead to the break when Jordan Conroy raced on for a try that Roche converted.

On return from the break, Kenya 7s won several penalties in Ireland’s territory and Odhiambo was set up by Bush Mwale for his second try with Anthony Omondi converting for a 14-12 scoreline in favour of Ireland.

Conroy strikes again

Kenya allowed Conroy to break for another try that was converted for a 21-12. Jack Kelly sealed their victory with a centre post try that was converted for a 28-12 win for the Irishmen.

Shujaa have a point from this defeat while Ireland have three points. The two teams will be back in action on Saturday.
