19 March 2015, 18:33

Nairobi - Former captain Humphrey Kayange returns for Kenya as Head Coach Felix Ochieng named the 12 man squad that will do duty at the sixth and seventh legs of the HSBC Sevens World Series in Hong Kong and Japan.  Kayange has been out of action since sustaining an ankle injury during the Commonwealth Games last August.

Ochieng said, “Humphrey has worked hard but still has his own personal targets to achieve but I am not going to focus on him alone. I am focusing on getting the best combinations in every position to be able to give us the best possible results going forward.”

Speaking about the side’s pool in Hong Kong where they are with England, Wales and the USA, Ochieng said, “ We’ve got teams that are pretty consistent in their structures and the way they play. We know it’s going to be a tough pool but we are expecting to apply what we have been doing at home and obtain positive results.” 

Kenya Rugby Union Chairman Richard Omwela who was present at the team naming said, “ We as management are doing everything possible to ensure that the team is ready and able to take on the challenge.

Kenya Airways representative Winnie Onyach who also attended the function said, “  Kenya Airways honors and celebrates a team that carries the Kenyan flag high, a team that embodies excellence. We are confident that the boys will produce a sterling performance in Hong Kong and Tokyo.”
