Oilers boss speaks on slow start, admits missing Abounji

Oiler head coach Gibson Weru believes that the loss of key players and failure to click is the reason behind their slow start in the 2018 National 7s Circuit
Unlike last season where they managed a final, semi final, two quarter final appearance,  Oiler have endured a tough start and they have made just one main cup quarters appearance this season.
The coach feels that the loss of Daniel Abounji who is in USA, Samuel Ngethe, Javan Odhiambo who suffered an injury setback and Luiz Anjera has affected his side.
He is, however, confident that they will turn around their results in Mombasa gauging by the display in Machakos.
“I lost four key players from the starting line up. The loss of Dan Abounji and Sam Muregi, Javan Odhiambo, Anjera was a blow. Though that is not an excuse because have got new players who have filled their slot. The thing is we have not been able to click,” he told Scrummage.
“Some of the players had not tested 7s before but with how they have done in this tournament (Kabeberi) I believe we will do well in Mombasa.” He added.
In Mombasa, the side is in a tricky pool that has Homeboyz, Mean Machine and hosts Mombasa.
