Jeff Oluoch’s try at the death saw Shujaa set up a Hong Kong Sevens cup semifinal date against New Zealand at 11.03am EAT .

Receiving the ball deep in his half, Oluoch backed his pace to score under the posts with Sammy Oliech converting with little time on the clock, Shujaa claiming the 19-12 result over Scotland.

It was a finely poised fixture, both sides giving as good as they got. Willy Ambaka opened the scoring with Oliech drilling home the difficult conversion for a 7-0 score before Jamie Farndale responded for Scotland, Ruaridh Jackson converting to level up the scores.

Scotland piled the pressure on Shujaa but Oscar Ouma struck with a long range try to see Innocent Simiyu’s charges take a 12-7 lead into the interval.

It was still close in the second half, Shujaa’s forward movement hampered by a series of unforced errors. Farndale soon landed his brace to restore parity before Oluoch’s intervention moments before full time.

This comes after Kenya sailed through after thrashing Canada 33-10 and hitting Spain 26-0 garnering 7 points. Also, Shujaa lost to Australia 28-26 after the Kenyans failed to capitalize on their chances for conversion hence giving the Australians the edge over them.
