Half-back Johnstone Olindi scored the first try for Kenya for his first ever in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series with veteran Dennis Ombachi crossing over for the second.

Australia will meet Argentina in the quarter-finals on Saturday at 6:44pm AEDT while New Zealand will face Scotland, red-hot Fiji will take on the United States of America and reigning world series champions South Africa come up against England.

Far tougher was the semifinals, where New Zealand scored early against England, led 7-5 at halftime, then spent the entire second half on defense, as England remarkably did everything but score.

In the quarter-finals New Zealand beat Scotland 21-7 and then held on to beat England 7-5 in the semi-finals. England, which beat defending champion South Africa in the quarterfinals, came from behind against Australia to finish third overall.

The two-time winners broke back through Dominique Du Toit, but Ellie Kildunne and Natasha Hunt both went over the whitewash to seal a ideal start to the event in Dubai.

Australia picked up where they left off on day one in their quarter-final with Argentina, dominating from the outset as they continued their bid for a first Cup success in Dubai.

Australia also went through the mill in their semi-final and felt heartbreak at the death.

A brace of tries by the hotstepper Rosko Speckman highlighted the Blitzboks' opening salvo in defence of their Dubai Sevens title as they dispatched Zimbabwe 31-0.

"Australia is one of the top teams in the world, and we [were] looking to go all the way, and so you know you're going to have to play those girls at some point in the day", said Landry.
