Homeboyz boss opens up on National 7s triumph

National 7s Circuit Champions Homeboyz head coach Paul Murunga believes winning the opening three legs was key in their title race
The side collected 22 points at Prinsloo, Sepetuka and Kabeberi 7s to lead the title race. The side would add on 13 and 19 points at Driftwood and Dala 7s respectively.
Happy ending
Homeboyz ended the season on a high by scooping the Christie 7s title and reclaimed the National 7s title.
The former Kenyan International is happy with the hard work from his charges that made them reclaim the title which they first won in 2016.

“We are happy and the boys have really worked hard. I think winning the opening three tournaments made the difference in our title chase. In Mombasa and Kisumu we did not perform well but we collected good points to enabled us win it,”  Murunga told Scrummage.
In the Christie 7s the Deejays were forced to come from behind twice to send the clash to sudden death and skipper Leonard Mugaisi would land the crucial try that saw them bag the fourth main cup title in 2018.
Murunga stated that the spirited fight was fueled by the fact that they had not won Christies before and his charges we keen to bag it.
“After the quarterfinals win we had the title but going to the semis and finals the boys really wanted to win christie 7s since we had won it as a club,” he added.
The Kakamega High Aluminus says Mwamba was their only side that gave them a run for money. He has also attributed their winning run to a blend of youth and experience.
“Last year we won two but came short with two points and Kabras won it. This year its only Mwamba that gave us a good fight and played well with young boys. As a club we have been able to blend of youth and senoir player and they have done a good job.
Homeboyz shifts focus on 15s as they seeking to replicate the 7s run in the longer version.
