Shujaa who lost all their matches in Dubai last weekend, next play France at 3.20pm, before completing their day one outing against a tricky Fiji at 6: 4opm.

People dressed up in fancy costumes enjoy HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, at Cape Town Stadium, on December 8, 2018, in Cape Town.

The poor showing in Dubai was Kenya Sevens' worst ever performance since the Paris 7s leg of the 2016/2017 World Rugby Sevens Series, where they collected one point after losing in the semi-final for 13th place.

Fiji Airways Men's National 7s Captain Kalione Nasoko and speedster Alasio Naduva have both been named in the 2018 Cape Town 7s Dream Team.

Elsewhere on Sunday, hosts South Africa won the bronze in Cape Town, beating last week's winners New Zealand 10-5.

They faced Samoa first up in and were under pressure as they conceded an early try, but a three minute blitz saw them score two quick tries from stalwarts Kyle Brown and Captain Phillip Snyman, while rookie Impi Visser in his second tournament added another before Justin Geduld who was returning from injury rounded off the scoring to give the Blitzboks a 22-12 win over the Pacific Islanders.

New Zealand hit back in the dying moments with two tries of their own, though, to win the game and deny the Blitzboks a flawless record on day one.
