Kabras coach reveals factors that disrupted the 7s campaign

Kabras 7s Coach Edwin Achayo admits that the side failed to hit the targets set for the 7s campaign and that their season was disrupted by several factors.
The Sugarmen came to the 2018 campaign as defending Champions after having made history in 2017 by winning the National 7s Series for the first time. The side, however, failed to go past the quarterfinal in all the six legs with their best performance being in Eldoret where they got a fifth-place finish.
62 Points
Kabras ended up picking 62 points in the entire season and finished fifth on the National 7s Circuit Standings. According to Achayo who led the side in the campaign, the side had high expectations with their main target being to defend the 7s title which did not happen.
“To be honest we did not achieve what we expected. We had high expectations since we were the defending champions. We expected to defend our the title but things did not go according to plan, Achayo told Scrummage.

The former Kenyan International believes that they were unlucky to lose key players to injuries, the 7s World Cup and the 2019 World Cup Qualifiers.
“We have been unlucky, sometimes you need lady luck to swing your way. We had key players injured and also lost key names to the qualifiers with Kenya Simbas and Uganda Cranes. We had to do with what we had. When they (key players) came back, it was a blessing for a short while because they had to pull out due to injuries and fatigue had also checked in so our preparation were affected by a lot of things, ” he added.
