Sevens team in low key return

16 October 2013, 11:21

Nairobi - The Sevens rugby team, which quietly flew back into the country following a disappointing run in the Australian Series, is confident of better fortunes in the Dubai leg of the International Rugby Board Sevens Series.

The team arrived in the country amid the absence of the usual fanfare after losing 36-0 to New Zealand in the finals of the just-concluded series Down Under.

“We hope for better results in the Dubai series scheduled to commence in the next five weeks,” said acting coach, Felix Ochieng, following the team’s arrival in Nairobi.

It is highly unlikely that the acting coach will accompany the team for the upcoming series in the United Arab Emirates.

Ochieng replaced Michael Friday in an acting capacity and the Kenya Rugby Union is expected to make a new appointment before the competition begins

Paul Treu, the South African, is a favourite to land the job.

Kenya has been placed in the same pool with New Zealand, France and Portugal for the Dubai series.

The pool is one of the most competitive considering the fact that both New Zealand and Kenya made it to the finals of the Australian series.

The local national team is expected to utilize the limited time to correct the mistakes they made in their finals.
