Nairobi, KENYA: Kenya’s Rugby Sevens team Shujaa will be seeking to eclipse the dismal show it posted in Vancouver Sevens last season when the HSBC World Sevens Series enter its sixth leg this weekend in Canada.

Shujaa must put an improved performance if they are to erase the poor outing they had in Vancouver where they picked only one point, their worst result ever in Canada.

They will however have to be at their best if they are to achieve the fete putting in mind they have been pooled alongside series leaders South Africa, third placed England and minnows Chile.

This is the second time that Shujaa will be coming up against the sides this season having met during the Sydney Sevens, where they lost 19-12 and 14-7 to South Africa and England respectively before beating Chile 21-19.

After triumphing in Las Vegas last weekend where it won Challenge Trophy to remain 11th in the standings on 35 points, Shujaa perhaps has a room for improvement.
