A total of 19 coaches applied for the Kenya Under-20 Head Coach position which was advertised three months ago.

The Star Sports reports that Kenya Rugby Union is expecting to have a candidate to fill the slot by the end of December.  Kenya Rugby Union acting Chief Executive Officer and director of rugby, Thomas Odundo, told the paper that the position attracted nine local and 10 foreign coaches.

“The interviews are on going virtually with the candidates and by the end of the end of the month we will have the coach,” Odundo is quoted by the Star.

Former Kenya 7s coach Paul Murunga is reportedly the favourite to fill the slot. The new coaches immediate task will be to retain the Africa Barthes Cup which Chipu won in 2019 beating Namibia 21-18.

“Our goal will be to qualify for the global tournament but first we need to qualify and get the green-light in as far as the Covid-19 situation is concerned,” Odundo added.

Coach Paul Odera who guided Kenya Under 20 to Barthes Cup victory at KCB Sports Club was tasked to handle the Kenya Simbas and opted to leave the junior team role.

The Barthes Cup is expected to return in 2021 with the 2020 edition having been cancelled due to COVID-19. Kenya still has the rights to host the Junior Tournament in 2021 and 2022 editions.
