Cape Town - South Africa overcame a spirited Kenya side to win their second Pool B match 22-5 at the Glasgow Sevens.

Kenya led 5-0 at the break at the Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow with Collins Injera crossing the line for the Kenyans.

The South Africans started off the second half brightly and when Andy Amonde was yellow carded for a professional foul, the Blitzbokke took their chance to take the lead.

First, Kyle Brown easily went past the Kenyan defence from the ensuing penalty before Seabelo Senatla added another two tries in quick succession shortly thereafter.

Ruhan Nel added a fourth try which Cecil Afrika converted.

The Blitzbokke's next Pool B match is arch-rivals New Zealand at 19:37.
