Rugby 7s: Women's Pool Matches

Olympics

ByTheMinRio2016

Afternoon all. @aidanleape here with you to take you through the final pool games in the Women's Rugby 7s. We'll see each team play once as they battle for a place in this evenings Quarter Finals.

It's the Top 2 through from each of the two pools, with the best couple of third placed teams also qualifying for the last 8. The schedule for this afternoon is: 3pm - Spain v Kenya 3:30pm - New Zealand v France 4pm - Brazil v Japan 4:30pm - Canada v Great Britain 5pm - Fiji v Columbia 5:30pm - Australia v USA

So we start with Pool B oddly, which after two games stands like this New Zealand - 4 France - 4 Spain - 0 Kenya - 0 Spain v Kenya here for the chance to be a 'lucky loser'

Spain and Kenya on the pitch and we're ready to go

Easy early try for Spain for Pla after a knock on right out of the gate by the Kenyans. Advantage was played, and to good effect. Conversion missed. Spain 5 Kenya 0 (5:14 - 1st)

Kenya immediately under pressure from the Spanish, and forced into a 22 drop out here. A pretty slow paced start here. ESP 5 KEN 0 (2:40 - 1st)

A good spell of play from Kenya, and a wonderful try. Quick hands on the floor and Doreen Remour is in to tie up the scores. Conversion missed. Spain 5 Kenya 5 (0:30 - 1st)

Half time hooter goes, last chance for Spain to make something on it. They had an overlap chance but it went astray. They are able to recycle though to the opposite side, but eventually give away a penalty. Kenya kick it out, and that's half time. Spain 5 Kenya 5

Impressive half from Kenya. Looked defensively very sound and scored an excellent try. They we're -85 in points difference, so this is a clear improvement.

Not much turnaround time. My fingers will hurt come 5:30 that's for sure. Kenya to kick us off in the second half, level at 5-5 with Spain.
