Kenya clinches an epic win over Australia to become the Challenge Trophy winners at the Wellington Sevens

A Kenya eeeeh?!

Kenya clinched an epic win over Australia (after 15 defeats in a row to the Aussie team) to become the Challenge Trophy winners at the Wellington Sevens over the weekend, celebrating in style with their trademark dance moves!

Kenya stunned with the final score of 19-17 after solid performances during the leg in the lead-up to the final:

  • Kenya v Argentina 12-17
  • Kenya v Papua New Guinea 47-5
  • England v Kenya 31-12
  • Kenya v Russia 24-5
  • Kenya v USA 19-12
  • Kenya v Australia 19-17

Afrodownunder have supported the Kenya Sevens team from the very beginning of the sevens world series way back when it all started through co-ordination of the Kenyan cheering squad in the host cities of the Australian leg of the tours, as well as hosting the AFTER7S rugby after-parties in allegiance to them, and of course for all the fans.

Kenya are now jointly in 8th place with 25 points in the series standings alongside Australia and Argentina leading in to the Sydney 7s this weekend, and share the upcoming pool with South Africa, England and Japan in Pool A.

Next stop, Sydney. Let’s go Kenya, let’s go!
