Kenya 7s is ready for the third leg of the 2018/19 HSBC World Sevens Series -Hamilton 7s where they arrived earlier this week. 

Head Coach Paul Murunga told Raga House they have had a fantastic stay in New Zealand training on Tuesday and Wednesday with the captain's run set for Friday before the matchday on Saturday. 

On Wednesday, captain Jacob Ojee joined the other 15 skippers at Turangawaewae Marae, Ngaruawahai in New Zealand where they had a lifetime of memories from the various captains photos and a special moment to greet some Maori elders.  

Kenya will be looking to get their season going after collecting only four points so far(1 in Dubai and 3 in Cape Town). 

A new look Kenya 7s will start off with South Africa at Hamilton 7s on Saturday 26 January, 2019 at 12.22am at FMG Stadium Waikato Stadium. 

South Africa captain Philip Snyman told World Rugby TV that facing "our rivals" Kenya "is never easy against them, they are very physical so we need to get over that first and then to play the French and Scotland this is not easy game so we will not be at our best this will be a long weekend."
