Kenya has landed a rather fair pool ‘B’ at the 4th leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series together with USA, France and Canada.

The Kenyan side will head at the Spotless stadium in Sydney, this weekend sitting 13th on the series table after participating in the first three legs held in Dubai, South Africa and New Zealand.

Kenya will be looking to improve on their performance this weekend in Australia for the 4th leg.

A disastrous start to the season in Dubai saw Kenya manage to pick a single point from the first leg, and that poor show continued in the second leg in South Africa where they collected three points.

The going wasn’t any easy in New Zealand over the weekend where the collected seven points.

Currently the team has a total of 11 points out of a possible 66 from the three legs.

But the team has a chance to turn things around from the fourth leg after being pooled in a less competitive group ‘B’ and will open their campaign against Canada, before facing USA and France.

Fiji, champions of Cape Town and Hamilton, are at the helm with 57 points, same as USA, while New Zealand, who won the first leg in Dubai, is in third position three points adrift.
