IT sounds good news for the Vodafone Fiji sevens team, Kenya will be without its Oscar Ouma and inspirational captain Andrew Amonde for the HSBC Sevens World Series tournaments in Glasgow and London.
Fiji is grouped with Paul Treu's men, Argentina and former world champions Wales in Pool C at the Scotland tournament. However, that should not rule Kenya out of the equation as proven in the past Treu's troops are an unpredictable side.
The experienced Collins Injera will captain Kenya at the final leg.
Treu has named Felix Ayange, Philip Wamae, Michael Wanjala and Tony Owuor to replace Ouma, Amonde, Daniel Sikuta and Maxwell Theuri.
"It's going to be tough without our captain Andrew Amonde who is ruled out as well as key players who are out through injury or other commitments," Treu told irb.com.
"But we look forward to the challenge. We honestly believe we can finish the season on a high."
The Osea Kolinisau-captained national sevens side plays Argentina in its opening game at 9.30pm on Saturday before taking on Kenya at 12.36 on Sunday morning. Fiji plays Wales at 3.47am in its final pool game.
