Earlier, South Africa faced their sternest test of the tournament against 2015 Dubai winners Fiji in the semi-final.

South Africa successfully defended their Emirates Airline Dubai Rugby Sevens title after beating New Zealand 24-12 in the opening round of the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2018.

Eden Agero put restored Kenya's lead thanks to some quick thinking as he rose off the ruck unnoticed after tapping against the ball and then racing clear of two Ugandan clutches score to make it 12-7. Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb got the All Blacks Sevens back into the match, but at 19-12 it was the powerful Tim Agaba who closed the game out.

New Zealand had looked on course to go all the way after a day one where they defeated South Africa 40-0 and France 28-7, before thrashing the USA.

"We kind of let them back into the game and a silly yellow card and one or two silly mistakes towards the end nearly cost us", Snyman said after the final.

The second World Series tournament begins next weekend in Cape Town. "We want to focus on our processes and if we leave the result and the result doesn't go our way then we're still happy", he added.

Jeffery Oluoch powered over from a turn over ball to put Kenya ahead, but his celebration was cut short by Seabelo Senatla, who latched onto a loose ball in the middle to draw level before he grabbed the brace for the tournament's champions.

On the men's side, Canada split its opening games, with a 29-15 loss to Kenya followed by a 22-17 win over Uganda.

The US went on to beat Russian Federation 21-12 in the semi-finals, but were comprehensively outplayed 34-0 by Olympic gold medallists Australia in the final.
