Day two on Friday will see them take on Belsevens at 12:20pm, before finishing up their Pool matches against Aruka Queen Kumagaya at 2:20pm.

Kenya Lionesses had appealed for funding to enable them participate in Dubai Sevens, which forms part of their build up towards the qualification for the 2020/2021 World Rugby Sevens Series.
