With 37 points and 12 points behind the Uruguay RWC 2023 Squad going into the final two legs in Toulouse and London, Kenya is now ranked 13th in the rankings. The 15th-ranked core teams and lower, based on total series points after the tenth round in Toulouse, will be demoted, according to Rugby World Cup. At the eleventh and last round of the series in London, the teams that finished 12th, 13th, and 14th at the end of the Toulouse's leg will compete against the Challenger Series 2023 champions in a four-team relegation play-off. The round-robin format of the relegation play-off will be followed by a final between the top two clubs.

While the other three teams compete in their respective Regional Sevens Championships to earn a spot in the 2024 World Rugby Sevens Challenger Series, the winning team will join the Series as the 12th core team.

In advance of the last two legs of the World Rugby Sevens Series, which will be contested in Toulouse and London, Kenya Sevens captain Nelson Oyoo vowed that his team will not allow Shujaa to lose.

Oyoo, who was selected for the traveling group by head coach Damian McGrath, feels they have the ability to emerge from the muck. Oyoo will captain the national sevens team once more.

They believe in themselves and will not let Kenyans down.

Everyone on the team is aware of the current circumstance we are in and the need to succeed in the next two legs. We have had a very hard and competitive season both on and off the pitch, but we will do our best.

We cannot yet allow the squad to falter. The team has some of the top players and upcoming future stars, and if we follow our game plan and carry out our set plays, I think we can remain afloat, according to Oyoo.

According to Shujaa coach Damian McGrath, all of the players have shown an amazing attitude towards training and everyone is aware of the gravity of the situation. The key to it all is if we can overcome our own mistakes, which have been our weak points.

We're going to attempt to carry out a straightforward approach that, hopefully, works for what we have, he added. Kenya will play their last pool match tomorrow at 1:21 p.m. against Canada after facing Uruguay RWC 2023 Squad, who are now 11th in the group with 49 points. Kenya will then play leaders New Zealand at 7:16 p.m.
