Kenya Sevens have qualified for today's Dubai Sevens Main Cup quarter-final after beating Uganda 29-14 in a physical decisive final Group A match at The Sevens Stadium, last evening.
Attentions now turn to South Africa for round two of the Sevens World Series, with less than a week's recovery time before they do it all again in Cape Town.
The second half saw Rosko Specman sent to the bin in the first minute of the second half and New Zealand immediately forced their way back into the match with two tries in two minutes through Andrew Knewstubb and captain, Scott Curry, one of which was converted to take the score to 19-12.
But in the dying embers‚ Tim Agaba drove over from close range to seal with win and secure the Blitzboks the maximum 22 log points.
The Kiwis had remained unbeaten in pool play and through the quarter and semi- finals at the season-opening Dubai Sevens, but never really recovered from a storming South African start in the final.
The conversion sailed over to put New Zealand 7-5 up, while England lost Mitchell with an injury.

"We want to focus on our processes and it we leave the result and result doesn't go our way then we're still happy".
It was the World Rugby Sevens Player of the Year 2016 Seabelo Senatla who showed his tactical awareness for the Blitzboks second, ripping the ball out of a ruck on the Fiji 10 metre line and slipping through the defence untouched.
"It's easy to play well in a team as good as this‚" Smith said.
