Kenya Morans youngsters praised after Safari 7s display

Kenya Moran’s skipper Sam Motari had quite a lot to talk about in line with the recently concluded Safari 7s, where the side had an impressive run. 
Motari who made his Kenya 7s National team debut in 2016 at the historic Singapore 7s win, heaped a lot of praise on his teammates.
He specifically talked about his teammate’s willingness to put in the work that was required for them to finish position three at Safari 7s.
He went on to name his teammate Brian Wahinya as one of the best emerging talents, citing Wahinya’s skillset, composure, and good defence as one of the key reasons why Morans performed beyond people’s expectations.
“I am happy with the boy’s performance. We came in as underdogs but we have surprised many. The young boys have really stepped up.  The young players are exciting since they have the energy and will to push their bodies further, Brian has been outstanding in the tournament and even though we did not get what we wanted he showed what he has to bring on the table. The other players also stepped up, ” he said in a post-match interview.
Commenting on the loss to Samurai in the Semifinals, the Impala Saracens man revealed that they were affected by stage stage fright. He, however, believes the side will be more dangerous if they manage to overcome the stage fright.
“To be honest we panicked but it’s a learning curve if we get rid of the stage fright them we can be a force to reckon,” he added.
The players are set to resume normal training for final preparations ahead of the World 7s Series kick off.
