A 19-21 Challenge Trophy final loss to Scotland saw Shujaa collect seven points from the Hong Kong Sevens on Sunday evening. The result saw the team climb up one place in the latest standings from 12th to 11th with 47 points.
Frank Wanyama opened the scoring, Sammy Oliech converting for a 7-0 score but Gary Hart’s converted try brought the Scots level before Jamie Fleming’s try and Wight’s conversion gave Scotland a 14-7 lead.
Dennis Ombachi would score as Shujaa trailed 12-14 at the break.
Fleming’s third converted try saw Shujaa trail further, the scores 12-21 and were for their incessant pressure when Andrew Amonde touched down under the posts, Oliech with the conversion, too little to late as full time soon sounded.
