Kenya Lionesses coach Wambua impressed by debutants show at Africa 7s


Kenya Lionesses coach Kevin Wambua lauded the performance of the four debutants in the team after the side won a historic Africa Women’s 7s title in Gaborone, Botswana. 
Despite missing key players in Celestine Masinde, Rachel Mbogo, Stacey Awuor and Doreen Remour, Lionesses put up a solid display in Gaborone which saw them score 30 tries and 17 conversions while letting in only two tries, a run that saw them break the hodoo of finishing second since 2014.
“We were tired of finishing as runners up.The team had enough experience with players who had featured at the Commonwealth Games as well as the qualifiers in Hong Kong,” Wambua said after the team touched down at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Monday.
The quartet of Diana Awino, Sarah Oluche, Sophia Ayieta and Prisca Nyerere were all making their first international appearance for the side, with Wambua expressing satisfaction with their display.
“We had four debuntants and they were able to hold their own, proving that indeed Women’s rugby in Kenya has grown in leaps and bounds.Iam proud of the team because conquering Africa is something we have worked towards for a long time,”he noted.
