Nairobi - Kenya Sevens Performance Director and Head Coach Paul Treu believes the main objective for his side during this weekend's Gold Coast Sevens is to integrate the new squad members at his disposal into the core group that exists already.
Treu was speaking to the official Kenya Rugby Union website ahead of this weekend's opening round of the 2014/2015 HSBC Sevens World Series in Australian.
"It has been a challenging two weeks trying to get our new players up to speed. We won't be ready by far, but will give it our best for every game. We moved away from outcome goals to process goals and as long as we learn and see progression, it will be a good indication of future potential," the former South African coach said.
"Our core focus for this weekend will be to establish which players have the potential to acquire new skills and show glimpses of a much desired mental resolve.

"We want to build a winning culture and as with every challenge and such endeavor, it often starts with small steps. Even the best players in the world started somewhere and we just want our new players take the pitch and maximize every learning opportunity. We will put the scoreboard behind us for this tournament and focus on individual and team progression from game one," he concluded.
Kenya has been drawn in Pool B for the Gold Coast Sevens alongside South Africa, Wales and American Samoa.
