This will be Kenya's fifth consecutive Rugby World Cup Sevens appearance and former head coach Benjamin Ayimba said the team has the capacity to make history and win the World Cup for the first time.

However, Ruto promised the team prior to leaving for USA that such embarrassing scenarios would not see the light of the day ever again.

Africa will have four teams out of the 24 that will be battling it out in the competition.

Commenting on his squad selection ahead of the tournament in San Francisco, Simiyu believes it is the best side ever and capable of beating any team.

"We have been training well so far", said the Blitzbok captain.

Australia dominated in the Dubai and Sydney leg of the World Series, including a 31-0 final win in Sydney, but they were unable to sustain that through the next three legs.

"I am really proud of what they have achieved at this point and the hardest decision in my career as a coach was to prepare and name a team for the World Cup".

The opening match against Ireland or Chile must set the momentum for the remainder of the weekend, Snyman said.

"But we went in and won the World Cup and it was great".

"The tournament structure is different, but exciting, and we are eager to get out there and get things started".

"We must bring our "A" game from the first match to the last".

- Fijian warriors took over San Francisco's Union Square Tuesday morning, performing traditional song and dance to kick off celebrations ahead of the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 tournament.

The Russians are rated among the top five teams in the world, while South Africa are just outside the top ten. But he will definitely make use of the mental toughness that his players showed in the knockout stages in Paris, which will help them tame this beast of a format.

"We are certainly not the favourites", Pienaar said.

These games were also the first World Universities Rugby Sevens Championships being hosted after the 2016 Rio Olympics, and were held in Africa for the first time. I can remember we were warming up and I saw in the crowd one of the Fiji supporters with a sign saying "Take it home Fiji".
