Kenya's rugby stars aim for World Cup glory

The sport of rugby sevens has never been more popular in Kenya, with the national team rising up the rankings.

    Friday sees the start of the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow.

    Nearly 30 countries will be competing in the men's and women's events, as the sevens game continues to grow in popularity ahead of its Olympic debut in 2016.

    Kenya is just one nation that has been quick to embrace this rapid fire version of rugby.
