NAIROBI,
Kenya, Mar 9 – Shujaa has dropped one spot to 12th in the World Rugby
Sevens Series standings after picking just three combined victories in the North
Americas tour of the series which culminated with the Vancouver 7s on Monday
morning.

While they
picked up two wins in the Los Angeles leg, Shujaa picked up just one win in
Vancouver Canada, a 28-0 victory over Wales in the ninth-place quarter finals.

They were
however beaten by Scotland 12-7 in the semis, the same side that drowned them
in the 13th place final in Los Angeles just a week earlier. The
defeat to Scotland meant Shujaa picked up just six points, three more than they
had in Los Angeles last weekend.

In the
Vancouver ninth place semi, Alec Coombes, the same man who scored an extra time
winner against Shujaa a week back popped up once again to score the decisive
try that gave the Scots victory in Canada.

Oscar
Dennis had drawn Shujaa level with a try converted by Daniel Taabu after Harvey
Elms had given the Scots the lead with a try converted by Gavin Lowe.

It was an
indifferent performance from the earlier quarter final game against the Welsh
where Shujaa showed the pace and power synonymous with them in the series to
win 28-0.

The Kenyan
boys had four converted tries from Vincent Onyala, Sammy Oliech, Jeff Oluoch
and Collins Injera. Oliech converted three of the tries while one was booted
home by Injera.

Shujaa
dropped out of Cup contention and into the ninth-place play-off after losing
all their pool matches. They lost to New Zealand, Spain and Ireland.

The team
will now return home for rest and recovery before they get back to work ahead
of the European Tour that will take them to London and Paris, with head coach Paul
Feeney looking to use these two tournaments to prepare for the Olympics.

A lot had
been expected from the team after the return of Oscar Ouma, Oliech and Daniel
Sikuta, but the under-performance will leave the tactician scratching his head
on whether to make changes again for London and Paris.
