Kenya 7s will be celebrating a milestone within their squad this weekend as former captain Andrew Amonde will earn his 70th cap as he takes to the pitch at the Stade Jean-Bouin, Paris 7s.

Amonde, who captained his side to Singapore 7s win in 2016, played his 69th tournament in London last weekend.

His 70th cap will come when Kenya seeks a stellar performance to stay up at the HSBC World Sevens Series.

The Kenya Cup winner with KCB has scored 290 points in his 69 appearances with all of them coming from 58 tries. No other Kenya 7s player in the current Paris 7s squad has scored more points/tries than Amonde.

New Zealand will be celebrating a milestone as co-captain Scott Curry reaches 50th. He will be joined by France’s Terry Bouhraoua who will also be marking his 50th cap in Paris, and will be looking for the support of the home crowd to give his team an extra boost.

Two sevens stalwarts will be marking the end of their HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series careers this weekend as James Rodwell – the most capped rugby sevens player of all time – will play his last series game for England in what will be his 93rd cap.

Scotland’s highest capped rugby sevens player, Scott Riddell announced his retirement from rugby sevens earlier this week and will bow out after Paris having made 74 appearances for his country.
