KCB coach discloses secret behind consistent run in 7s

KCB 7s coach Dennis Mwanja says combining youth and experience and setting achievable targets was the reason behind their consistent performance in the National 7s Circuit.
The Bankers made five straight semi-final appearances in the opening five legs and it was only at Christie 7s where they missed the semis.
Speaking on the 2018 performance, Mwanja stated that the youthful players brought balance in the team and they did not put pressure on themselves on achieving the targets set at the start of the season.
“It was a combination of the youth and experience. Our forwards of Andrew Amonde, Davis Chenge who are National team players and youthful players like Jeff Okwach, Samuel Asati Vincent Onyala have been a good blend. The introduction of the younger players created balance in the team,” he told Scrummage
“Coming from last year we set achievable targets, we did not give ourselves more pressure about achieving them which made us move a step higher,” he added
Podium finish
The former Kenyan International is happy with a podium finish in the 2018 campaign which he feels was an improvement for his charges.
“We wanted to win everything but getting the third place is good enough. Last year we were getting to the fifth place mostly but this year we reached the semi and finished third overall which commendable,” he concluded.
Last season the Bankers finished fourth despite winning Prinsloo 7s and finishing as finalists at Dala 7s.
