The win means Spain maintain their spot on top of the group on point with a superior point difference. Samoa, who are also on 10 points, had to make a late comeback to pick a 30-27 win against Hong Kong China in a match where they were reduced to 12 men at a point.
Hong Kong are third after picking a bonus point against Samoa while Kenya have to contend
with the bottom on a solitary point, at least until their Hong Kong-China fixture. Kenya who are out of Cup contention will be keen to rise from the bottom.
