Shujaa Wrap Up #Singapore7s Day One Action With A Win Over Wales

Shujaa secured their first win of the 2019 Singapore 7s seeing off Wales 19-14 in their last pool C match.

The Welsh defenders bought Vincent Onyala’s dummy from Kenya’s half, allowing him to swiftly cut through them and race for the try line giving Shujaa the 7 -0 lead after Taabu’s conversion. A minute later, Wales leveled up the scores as Ryan Conbeer went over the whitewash followed by a successful conversion.

With a minute left to the breather and Wales deep in Kenya’s half , Oscar Dennis produced a try saving tackle denying Wales the opportunity to take the lead as the ball was lost forward. The scrum to Kenya saw Eden Agero set up Oscar Dennis to go over for his first career try in the Kenya Sevens jersey extending their lead to 14-7 at half time. It was a moment of sheer joy for the team as they all huddled up together congratulating Oscar!

The second half both sides traded a try each, Daniel Taabu going over for his third try of the day with the conversion sailing wide while Tom Rogers fended off his defenders landing the second Welsh try. Scores read 19-14 in favour of Shujaa and with a few seconds left on the clock, Nelson Oyoo’s skills at the breakdown resulted in him winning a much needed turn over for Shujaa, denying Wales the chance to try and take the lead.

Shujaa finish fourth in Pool C and will face the team that finishes third in Pool B tomorrow (Sunday 14th April) in the 4th Challenge Trophy Quarterfinal at 6:06am
