Oliech would then convert Jeff Oluoch's try to put the Kenyas 12-5 up but Canada kept in touch through Justin Douglas' unconverted effort which brought up the scores to 12-10 before Oliech stroked home two conversions after Nelson Oyoo and Willy Ambaka touched down to win the game for Kenya.

The Springbok Women's Sevens team suffered heavy defeats to Canada and New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games on Friday.

"We've been fighting for gender equity and we've come so far. [Yet] to be part of it is a real honour and exciting".

As we move closer to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, it's inevitable that the look of Canada's women's sevens team will evolve.

The match against New Zealand was an annihilation, as the Kiwis ran the South Africans ragged. That lead was extended to 24-0 at the break after they scored three more tries.

Scotland's men beat Papua New Guinea and Malaysia without conceding a point before losing 26-5 to South Africa in the final match of Saturday's programme, while Wales, having beaten Uganda and Sri Lanka, lost 21-17 against the Fijians.

There are 283 Canadian athletes competing in Gold Coast, of which 52 are from the Island or who live and train full-time in Greater Victoria.
