MMUST RFC halfback Kevin Abuga is impressed with the fighting spirit showed by his teammates during the 2019 National 7s Circuit.
The Kakamega based side showed an improved performance in 2019 making four fifth-place semi-final appearance and only missed the quarters twice. Ochieng Ahaya charges bagged 50 points, 32 more that what they got last season.
Speaking after the Drifwood 7s in Mombasa, Abuga said they have learned a lot from the series, and they will be aiming higher in the 2020 7s with their intentions being to feature in the final.
“The team spirit was high through out the season. We always fought till the end and never gave up. It has been an amazing season and next season our target will be play at least in the finals. We have learnt a lot during this season’s sevens campaign. We avoided relegation during the Driftwood and Prinsloo 7s. We hope to carry the same spirit to the 15s season. We hope to play in the Championship final,” Abuga told Scrummage.
MMUST finished above Kabras, Strathmore Leos, Kenya Harlequins, Blak Blad and Mean Machine. The side also won the 2019 KUSA 7s Circuit.
