Kenya Harlequins appoint Belgian Antoine Plasman as Head Coach

Kenya Cup side Kenya Harlequins have settled on Belgian Antoine Plasman as Head Coach ahead of the 2020/21 campaign.

Plasman will replace former Kenya Simbas forwards Coach Dominique Habimana who returned to the club ahead of the 2019/20 campaign and served just for a season.  The new tactician served as Belgium’s Under 18 and Under 20 head Coach and possesses a World Rugby Level Two certification.

He has served as head coach for Boitsfort Rugby Club in Brussels from 2017 to 2020. Confirming his appointment, Kenya Harlequins Chairman Michael Wanjala said: “This is an exciting moment for Kenya Harlequins. The appointment of Antoine Plasman highlights our ambition and vision for the Club. We are looking forward to a very successful season with him.”

Plasman was among three foreigners who were interested in the role and emerged top. Three local coaches also applied for the role to replace Habimana.

He becomes the third coach in a period of three seasons. Habimana took the job eight months ago from Charles Cardovillis who had quit the club a few days into his second season.

The three-peat Kenya Cup Champions (2010-2012) endured a tough season under Habimana winning just five matches in the entire campaign. They ended the season at position nine with 27 points.
