Kenya ready to fire at Hamilton Sevens

Black Ferns try-scoring machine Portia Woodman could get the chance to play in front of Kiwi fans in the Hamilton sevens Kenya ready to fire at Hamilton Sevens

Meanwhile, the Black Ferns sevens have been handed a tougher route to the semifinals than their male counterparts, after being placed in Pool A alongside Canada, South Africa and Kenya.

The hosts have at least avoided a nightmare first-up meeting with New Zealand, Fiji or South Africa but were always going to be handed a hard assignment given their fifth seeding.

Kenya Sevens are targeting to finish in the medal bracket despite being pitted against powerhouses New Zealand in the April's Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia.

The draw for the rugby sevens tournament was conducted at Cbus Super Stadium on Thursday morning, with Australia thrown in a tough Pool B with England, Samoa and Jamaica.

The national rugby sevens head coach Innocent "Namcos" Simiyu is optimistic his side will give an outstanding performance in the fourth leg of World Rugby Sevens Series in Hamilton, New Zealand. Hosts Australia are up against Fiji, England and Wales in the event, which runs from April 13-15.

Retired former skipper Ed Jenkins said Pool B was the "best outcome" for Australia - until Samoa were drawn from band three.

Recounting the side's showing at the third round in Sydney where they reached the cup quarterfinal, he said: "the team played well and believe they still have a lot to play for in Hamilton".

They have been drawn in Pool B with Fiji, England and Wales.

In the women's competition, top two from each pool will advance to the semis as they compete for medals at stake.

In the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, Australia, Kenya lost to Wales 33-0 and 41-0 to New Zealand with a 31-5 win over Namibia, their sole consolation from pool play.

The draw, overseen by World Rugby, saw 16 men's teams drawn into four pools of four whilst the eight women's teams were divided into two pools of four.
