Asego confident of success

02 July 2015, 13:03

Nairobi -  Samurai Wakulima head coach Lavin Asego believes his star-studded squad has what it takes to win the fourth edition of the Masaku Sevens International tournament.

Wakulima's freshly assembled squad is comfortable favourites for the competition, despite having had little time to train, due to the presence of several past and current Kenya Sevens national team players in the team.

The absence of defending champions Tabadamu has heightened the expectations placed on Samurai Wakulima, but Asego says his side is not intimidated by the added pressure.

"It is our first appearance in the tournament but we are not overwhelmed by expectations," he told Standard Digital Media.

"We have not had time to train together but we are motivated by the fact that we have played together before either at the club or national team level.

"Expectations are high, but we are just focusing on ourselves. It is a fun moment for the team and also an opportunity for us to prepare for the national circuit.

"We will give our best and the results will take of themselves. We are looking forward to a great weekend."

The Masaku Sevens International serves as somewhat of a curtain-raiser to the National Sevens Series, which begins with the Christie Sevens on 1 and 2 August followed by Kisumu's Dala Sevens a week later.
