The top three nations in Mombasa - Kenya, Zimbabwe and Tunisia - are all bound for Moscow at the end of June for the Rugby World Cup Sevens, but before that Kenya and Zimbabwe face key battles in the HSBC Sevens World Series.
Kenya's national side currently lies fifth-equal with France in the World Series standings and coach Mike Friday will have been pleased by the depth of talent on display with his 'B' team triumphing and a 'C' team finishing in sixth place.
Five of Kenya's victorious team in Mombasa - Billy Odhiambo, Davis Chenge, Felix Ayange, Philip Wamae and Eden Agero - will now travel to Scotland for the Emirates Airline Glasgow Sevens this weekend as they bid to finish a strong season on a high.
The Cheetahs of Zimbabwe do not compete in Glasgow, but have already booked their place at the core team play-off finale at Twickenham a week later, part of the Marriott London Sevens on 11-12 May.
At Twickenham, Zimbabwe will compete against Asian champions Hong Kong, Russia, Tonga and Georgia as well as the core teams ranked 13th, 14th and 15th after Glasgow, for three available core team places next season.
