Nakuru - Top Fry junior rugby team schools coordinator Felix Oloo has expressed satisfaction with how his young rugby teams, both boys in the under-12 and under-14, and girls under-18 performed during the just concluded 25th edition of the Great Rift Top Fry Rugby tournament staged at the Nakuru Athletics Club (NAC).
Coaching and coordinating two under-12 boys teams, namely New Life and Top Fry, Oloo said the match was tough when the two met at the under-12 finals, in which New Life won against Top Fry in 15-10.
In the under-12 semi finals, New Life had beaten Kaptembwa 21-0 as Topfry thrashed Baharini 10-0.
He further said the 2014 game had witnessed some improvements amid complaints of dalliance of the match in which visiting teams from Nairobi such as CRA came late, but said his under-14 boys' team lost 5-0 to visiting CRA at the finals owing to the fact that most of his players switched to playing for their respective schools.
However, Oloo said he is now eying the May 2014 age league comprising the under 10, 12 and 14 age brackets, prior to the June schools' league and the mega August Prinsloo 7s.
In the girls under-18 categories, Top Fry lost to visiting CRA from Nairobi, a situation Oloo alludes to new introduction of the girls’ category in the under 18-age bracket at the Great Rift Top Fry Rugby tournament. However, he alluded that his girls’ team would be a force to reckon with.
“Our girls’ team comprising Susan Wangare, Jane, Agnes Wangare, Vivian Akumu and Colleta had played Tourage Festivals tournament in the UK sometimes in October 2013, and we are confident of a better performance come Prinsloo 7s,” says Oloo.
