The team departed on Sunday November 25 for Dubai.

Kenya is in Pool A alongside Gold Coast champions Fiji, Spain and Scotland.

Lavin Asego and Sidney Ashioya make a return to the team that was named on Thursday morning at the KRFUEA grounds in Nairobi. The two missed out on the first leg in Australia owing to personal commitments and injury.

Collins Injera, Biko Adema and Oscar Ouma will feature in Dubai, returning to Nairobi while Fabian Olando, Billy Odhiambo and Oscar Ayodi will feature in the Port Elizabeth squad.

The Kenya Rugby Union’s Director of Elite Performance Philip Jalang’o while naming the squad said, “We anticipate a good performance from the team as they have prepared well. We are aware of the challenges faced in every leg of the series and the onus is on the players to put up consistent performances throughout the season. We believe the team we have selected is up to the task, this is the best team we have chosen for the upcoming assignments.”

Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Mwangi Muthee thanked the team’s sponsor Kenya Airways for their continued support. He said, “Kenya Sevens are no longer participants on the series. We are going to Dubai and Port Elizabeth as serious contenders and I call upon all Kenyans to rally behind the team.”
