Kenya 7s head coach Paul Feeney feels his side’s work rate improved greatly during the Cape Town 7s staged in South Africa.
The side finished sixth after the 17-5 loss to hosts to South Africa in the quarterfinals. The coach believes they improved on kickoffs which was the reason behind their fine run.
He also believes that giving each player playtime also played a role in their improved performance which saw lose just one of their four games in the tournament.
“We were unlucky in Dubai but we have definitely made improvements in our kickoffs. Everyone in the team has had a start in the matches, those that came off the bench during the Samoa match all started against Australia, so giving people opportunity has played a role in our performance. Our work rate has greatly improved as well,” Paul Feeney is quoted by KRU.
Kenya will now focus on Hamilton 7s which is set for New Zealand in 202 on 25th and 26th of January.
