Shujaa inched closer to the main cup quarterfinals of the Cape Town sevens on Saturday with a hard-fought 12-7 win over Australia.
Kenya started the match brightly dominating possession and it came as no surprise when Vincent Onyala crossed the whitewash with Daniel Taabu kicking over the conversion for a 7-0 lead.
The Aussies regrouped and a lapse in concentration by Shujaa saw Harry Hutchinson touch down Lewis Holland adding the extras to tie the match at 7-7 at the interval.
On resumption Alvin "Buffa" Otieno crashed over the line for unconverted try.
Kenya then had to repel the Aussies for the reminder of the match and secure a crucial victory.
