Nairobi - Kenya XV coach Jerome Paarwater heaped praise on his team following their dominant 41-15 win over Portugal on Saturday.
" The Portuguese were bigger but my charges were stronger and faster," said Paarwater.
" But that came at a price since the
players and the technical bench have sacrificed to work hard on it. The
players stuck to structures. We should have scored more points in the

ranked 23rd in the world, nine positions in front of Kenya, is a good
achievement that Kenya must build on going forward."
Kenya next face Zimbabwe in Harare on
June 13, after which they return to Nairobi to for a test against
Tunisia. Paarwater is looking forward to the challenge of boosting his
" We need more international matches and
refined youth development structures so as to make our journey to the
next 2019 RWC much easier," he added.
" The most important thing is that we
must have depth in the squad and that can only be achieved by bringing
in more young players."
