The Kenya Rugby Sevens squad advanced to the Main Cup Quarters of the IRB Gold Coast Sevens in Australia on Saturday after finishing second in group C.
In his first IRB World Series in charge of Kenya, Mike Friday's team started the campaign with a 14-14 draw against former side England. A defeat to England looked eminent but a try from a stunning Ombachi revived Kenya hopes.
After a 14-12 defeat to group winners Samoa, Kenya picked up itself to down Spain 19-0 to advance to the final eight. Biko Adema’s try and conversion in the last minute of the first period ensured Kenya sealed its gallant win. Kenya will now face hosts Australia in the Cup quarterfinals.
Samoa will play against their Pacific rivals Fiji while England will battle it out with Scotland in the Bowl quarters.
