Kenya Simbas skipper Chenge reflects on Namibia loss

Kenya Simbas skipper Davis Chenge admits that they had few lapses in concentrations especially on set pieces which Namibia took advantage of and punished them.
As the Kenya and Namibia faced off in Windhoek last weekend, the Simbas managed to lead the game at some point thanks to a converted try by Willy Ambaka.

They, however, allowed their opponents to rise in the game and stretched the lead beyond Kenya’s reach. Towards the end of the clash, Kenya fought back and even scored three tries but it was too late to recover. The side went down 53-28.
Chenge who features for Kenya Champions KCB, believes allowing a quality side like Namibia take a lead was a mistake.
“We started really well but at some point, we lost our concentration, lost on set pieces and Namibia is a good side they capitalized on our mistake and got more points. The morale went down a bit and by the time we recovered it scored but it was too late, he said.

The former Western Bulls captain added that the side did not have time for adequate preparations as compared to 2014 where they managed to beat Namibia but failed to beat Zimbabwe
“In the last (2014)competition, we started preparation early as compared to this competition and we were short of time.
The side now head to the Repechage tournament in France where an overall winner will earn them a place in the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
