Injera’s brace keeps Shujaa quarterfinal hopes alive

Collins Injera’s brace was vital in securing a 19-12 win over Russia to keep Shujaa’s cup quarterfinal hopes at the USA Sevens in Las Vegas alive.

Jeff Oluoch put Shujaa 5-0 up after latching on the inside pass from Nelson Oyoo. Innocent Simiyu’s charges would soon lose Sammy Oliech to injury before Injera popped up to touch down,Eden Agero with the conversion to stretch the lead to 12-0. The Russians grabbed a try moments before the break to trail 12-5.

German Davydov’s converted effort drew the Russians level before Agero converted Injera’s try after a patient Shujaa build up.
