 Injera to captain Kenya in USA
Collins Injera is the all-time leading try scorer for Kenya

Paul Treu has named his side for the fourth and fifth rounds of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Las Vegas, USA and New Zealand. 

With regular captain Andrew Amonde out with a shoulder injury, Treu hands the captain's armband to Kenya's all-time leading try scorer Collins Injera. 

The former South Africa Sevens coach Treu, who has won two of the last three Las Vegas Sevens titles, also welcomes back Humphrey Kayange who will make his first appearance of the 2013/14 Series and also Oscar Ouma.

Kenya currently sit seventh in the overall standings alongside Samoa on 32 points having made the Cup quarter finals at all of the rounds so far.

Patrice Agunda is also named in the squad, and Kenya will be hoping to improve on their disappointing performance in Las Vegas 12 months ago where they failed to make the Cup competition and lost to Australia in the Shield semi finals. 

Kenya face pool matches with Canada and Wales on day one, before Treu comes up against his former side and the Cell C Nelson Mandela Bay South Africa Sevens champions, South Africa on day two. 

Kenya Sevens squad: Daniel Sikuta, Partice Agunda, Billy Odhiambo, Humphrey Kayange, Horace Otieno, Oscar Ouma, Collins Injera, Tonny Owour, Biko Adema, Mike Agevi, Oscar Ayodi, Dennis Ombachi
