Aaron Bramwell is bottled up by the Kenyan defence in the quarter-final defeat.
Wales were outgunned in the quarterfinals of the Australian leg of the IRB Sevens World Series where eventual finalists Kenya ran home comfortable 33-14 victors at the Adelaide Oval.
The free-running Kenyans are rapidly building up a reputation as being the team to beat. They've always been super fit but now they have added strength and power to go along with their pace and the jet-heeled Africans fear no-body. Despite Wales's best efforts, Kenya were always in control.
By losing to Kenya, Paul John's young Welsh side then had to play in the Plate semi-final where they faced the hosts, Australia.
By this time the three-day event had caught up with the Welsh and they ran out of puff as the Aussies romped home 38-7.
Australia led 19-7 at the break after tries by Shaun Foley, Henry Vanderglas and Benjamin MaCalman against Will Harries' for Wales and they then cut loose in the second half through Shipperley, Bishop and captain Murphy.
Wales claimed four points towards the series total to go to 12 but with two legs to go in the series, South Africa are in the driving seat on top of the pile with 104 points with England (76) and Fiji (74) leading the chasing pack.
