Kenya 7s will be looking to finish above Wales and Japan to avoid relegation as they head into the London 7s which takes place on the 25th and 26th of May before finishing off the circuit a week later in Paris.
Coach Paul Murunga recalled four players; Brian Wandera, Cyprian Kuto, and Charles Omondi who are back from injury while skipper Jacob Ojee returned to the squad after personal commitments. The squad now boasts of experienced players as they look for a good finish to the circuit to maintain their core status in the HSBC 7s series.
Skipper Ojee is confident of better tidings in London and Paris attributing it to the team being able to train together for a longer period.
“We have been working on our weak areas mostly during the last one month of training since the team came back from Hong Kong. We have also built upon our team plays since all the players have trained together, for longer and not as before when the senior players joined the set up a few sessions to the travel date,” Ojee told KRU
Cyprian Kuto who is back into the squad after recovering from an injury picked in Vancouver believes the team can achieve the set targets in the remaining legs.
“I am happy to be back in the team so that we can achieve our set targets in these last two legs of the series. I had a hip problem in Vancouver that has since been dealt from the rehab sessions with Lamech Bogonko and Michael Shamia. I am going to put my best foot forward,” said Cyprian Kuto.
Kenya 7s have been pooled alongside Fiji, Samoa and France.
