Sydney, AUSTRALIA: Kenya’s sevens Shujaa has dropped one place in the World Series standings after performing dismally in the fourth leg held in Sydney, Australia over the weekend.

The Innocent Simiyu coached side finished 14th following a 10-5 defeat to Canada in the Shield finals picking paltry two points that left them 11th in the table on 27 points.

South Africa cemented their series lead by bagging 22 points bringing their point tally to 85, England moved second on 68 while Fiji dropped to third with 64.

Shujaa will now switch their focus to the fifth leg of the series, Las Vegas, set for March in USA, where they have been pitted in Pool C alongside New Zealand, Argentina and Russia.
