Kenya claimed a 13th place finish at the Singapore Sevens following a 21-5 win over Spain in the 13th place play-off yesterday. 

Having registered three wins and three losses at the two-day tournament, Shujaa  picked three points, two less than they managed at the Hong Kong Sevens. 

Against Spain, Kenya took a commanding 14-0 lead at halftime courtesy of converted tries by Vincent Onyala and Bush Mwale. 

Alejandro Alonso pulled one back for the Spaniards upon resumption but their hopes of overturning the scoreline  were dealt a blow as Taabu scored Shujaa’s third try.
