Kenya Simbas and Impala Saracens scrumhalf Samson Onsomu has disclosed Edwin Achayo’s role in ensuring that he developed to the type of player he currently is.
Speaking to Impala Saracens, Onsomu said that the Kabras RFC scrumhalf played a great role in moulding him to become a great halfback thus his entrance into the Simbas fold was smooth.
“Edwin Achayo who is older than me, mentored my steps. My fitting into the Kenya XV was therefore fluid. On matters depth, I have seen young players coming through for their clubs & are hungry for the red jersey.
Onsomu also added that his future plan for Kenyan Rugby is to groom upcoming young players to also become better halfbacks and leave a mark in the game.
“Well, many people would want to play now and into the future. But the best plans lie in moulding players younger than me into becoming better half-backs. I am currently working to offer insight to younger players.Onus is now on us to groom them into what we would like to watch & cheer on tomorrow.” he concluded.
Onsomu was recently named the Most Valuable Player for the past 15s season at Impala’s gala night and also had an outstanding perfomance over the weekend coming off the bench to inspire the Kenya Simbas salvage a 19 all draw against Hong Kong in a test match at the RFUEA grounds.
