On the first day of the Safari 7s at RFUEA Grounds, Kenya 7s emerged as the only team to secure victories in all three of their opening matches.

Shujaa concluded their successful day with a commanding 33-5 victory over Tropics 7s. John Okoth, Vincent Onyala, Nygel Amaitsa, Patrick Odong, and Brian Mutugi all contributed to the team’s scoring in this decisive win.

This triumph ensured that Shujaa ended the day with a perfect nine points, having previously defeated Uganda and SA All Stars. As they head into the final round of matches, Shujaa holds a strong position, putting them in a favourable position to reach the semifinals.

Uganda, after securing back-to-back wins, suffered a defeat against Shujaa but still managed to accumulate seven points, tying with SA All-Stars, who emerged victorious against Red Wailers and Tropics. Red Wailers, with just one win in this outing, have a total of five points.


In Pool B, the competition is wide open, with KCB earning eight points despite facing two losses and two wins. Morans and Samurai have each secured two wins in their pool, also accumulating eight points each.
