Kenya Sevens will be hoping to kick off the Seville Sevens on a high note when they face off against Australia Sevens from 4.49 pm East African Time at Estadio la Cartuja on Friday in Spain

Shujaa who had a dismal performance in Malaga Sevens last week where they won just one match in the five matches played are in Group D alongside Canada, Scotland and Australia.

Series leaders South Arica are in Group A alongside USA and Spain as Argentina, Ireland, Germany and Jamaica battle in Group B.

Group C features England, France, Wales and Japan.

Kenya finished last at the previous Malaga Sevens, losing to Japan 26-17 in the semi-final for 13th place.

The defeat saw them collect one point for the third leg of the 2021/2022 World Rugby Sevens Series.

Shujaa, who are now placed ninth in the Series with 23 points, lost to Canada and Scotland at different stages at Malaga Sevens.

"Our key focus now is to hit our performance standards consistently in a game and hopefully qualify first for the quarters," said Shujaa head coach Innocent Simiyu.

Kenya will be playing Canada and Scotland on Saturday at 10.45am and 4.30pm.
