“The road map to Rio is what I am going to discuss with the rugby management and the players between now and Wednesday," Ayimba told nation.co.ke.

"I have got two or three things to pick about the evaluation of the squad but I will have to see what they have to offer before I make adjustments."

Ayimba will taking over a troubled team as before he was inducted as the new coach the players were boycotting the Kenyan Rugby Union for not paying their salaries.
