Kenya Harlequins will discuss with new Head Coach Antoine Plasman on how the technical bench will be constituted before making an announcement, the Club’s Chairman Michael Wanjala has revealed.
Plasman was confirmed as Quins head coach on Monday but the club did not name the other members of his technical bench.
“We will have to talk to the new head coach and agree then from there we will announce,” Wanjala told the Scrummage.
On whether Dominique Habimana who led the side last season will be part of the bench, Wanjala says they will also need to talk to the tactician to know his stand before making a decision.
“For now, he is not with the team because he did not reapply. But if we can agree on the way forward, we can have him on the bench. If not we may have to constitute a totally new technical bench,” he added.

Wanjala also noted that the Ngong road-based will be targeting to develop the squad they had last season and they might not sign big names in the upcoming transfer window.
“We want to develop the players we have. At the end of last season as much we were struggling there were more young players who put up their hands. We are more likely going to focus on the current crop of players rather going for big-name signings. We will, however, make additions depending on when the transfer window opens,” he revealed.
“The Coach jetted in last week, he has met some of the players. At the moment the players are just having gym sessions in small numbers with the SnC as well as personalized programs as we await on the ministry to give the greenlight on training,” he concluded.
