Maseno School picks positives from Chavakali loss ahead of KSSSA 7s

Maseno School coach Paul Nyamita expressed optimism despite his charges going down 21-7 to Chavakali on Friday 18 May in the final of the Maseno 7s tournament. 
The final initially slated for 12 May was postponed due to poor weather conditions with Chavakali High School grounds playing host to the rescheduled final.
To reach the final,Maseno had seen off Siaya County’s Ambira as Chavakali eliminated former National champions Kakamega High with a 12-10 score.
“My charges are promising and we are aware that there will be a tough competition for the 3 slots for East Africa games in Rugby 7s;we are going to go all the way,”Nyamita told Scrummage.
The 2018 Kenya Secondary School Sports Association (KSSSA) term 2A Rugby 7s games get underway on Saturday 26 May with the sub county matches and Nyamita is optimistic that they can turn the tables in case they face Chavakali in the latter stages of the competition.
“I’m confident of beating them(Chavakali) should we meet again.The tournament gave us opportunities to know our weak areas which we are already working on,”the tactician noted.
“I thank all coaches and teams that participated in the Maseno open. I wish them success as the KSSSA 7s begins at all sub counties countrywide next weekend,”concluded Nyamita.
Two teams from each of the seven regions will converge in Eldoret for the National 7s games in July.Host region Rift Valley will have the priviledge of sending four sides to the showpiece.
The best three teams book a slot at the 2018 East Africa School games slated for Rwanda in August.
