| Leave a comment

Nigeria will play hosts Kenya and Senegal in pool ‘A’ of the 2016 Africa Sevens Tournament to be held at the Kasarani Stadium, Nairobi, Kenya this weekend.
Last year’s runner-up, Zimbabwe, would play Uganda and Mauritius in pool ‘B’; Morocco are in pool ‘C’ with Zambia and Madagascar, just as Tunisia lead pool ‘D’, where they would play Namibia and Botswana.
For a place in the 2015 final, Kenya had beaten Tunisia 42-12 in the semis as Zimbabwe defeated an improved Morocco 26-0 in the other semi.
Away from the top four positions, Namibia needed a late try to beat Madagascar 24-17 to claim the Plate as Uganda knocked out the Black Stallions of Nigeria 27-7 for the Bowl.
The Black Stallions would be looking to maintain a top-eight finish or go a step further to top-five at the tournament.
