Big lessons learnt for National Rugby team

18 November 2013, 12:39

Nairobi - National 15 a side rugby head coach Jerome Paarwater says he has learnt lessons about his team in their trip to Namibia.

The Kenyan team lost both matches of the 2013 Tri-Nations in Namibia, falling to both Zimbabwe and Namibia in the three nation contest.

Despite being the current African Champions, they were beaten by their more superior opponents and according to Paarwater, they have learnt lessons ahead of the World Cup qualifiers which take place next year.

" It was a good trip for us and valuable experience gained. We wanted to win the games we played and were disappointed that we did not do so.

" It is a wake-up call to us as we prepare for the World Cup qualifiers but I am cionfident that with time the changes that I have instituted in the team will pay dividends, he added.

The team arrived in the country early Monday morning from Namibia.
