Kenya’s relegation survival hopes hit another low after Shujaa went down 37-7 to England in the first match at the Singapore Sevens in Saturday.
In the last five meetings, Kenya has managed just one win against England. The sole win for Kenya came way back in March 2018 in a 12-0 victory Vancouver 7s leg.
Last meeting between the two sides ended in a 36-7 defeat to Shujaa during the Challenge trophy finals at the Hamilton 7s in January 2019.
Charlton Kerr scored the first try for England in the opening minute of the clash which was well converted by Will Edwards for s seven-nil lead.
World 7s leading scorer Dan Norton added a second try for the victors before Tom Mitchell added the extras for a 14-0 lead.
Shujaa skipper Jeff Olouch was sent to the bin and England capitalised on the numerical advantage to open a 19-0 lead after Kerr doubled his try.
Mitchell also added his name on the scorer list with a fourth try for England.
Jamie Barden and Femi Sofolari crossed over for two more tries for England.
Bush Mwale’s second half consolation wasn’t enough to save Shujaa from picking replica defeat at the Hamilton 7s finals.
The lost left Kenya in a tricky situation as the East African’s nation stare at relegation.
