Sevens up to Far East task

14 March 2014, 18:07

Nairobi - The Sevens Rugby side, technical team and sponsors are buoyant ahead of the team’s sojourn to the Far East for the 2013/14 HSBC Sevens World Series.

Among those brimming with confidence is returning captain, Andrew Amonde, who has made a timely recovery for the Tokyo and Hong Kong leg of the series, which begins o March 22.

“It feels great to be back, we head to the Far East with a lot of expectations and we will do our best in Tokyo and Hong Kong,” said Amonde.

Coach Paul Treu welcomed the return of his influential skipper and said the rest of the players feed off Amonde’s positivity and presence adding that he thinks he was going to make a big difference in Tokyo and Hong Kong.

Max Theuri will be the only new face in the squad.

Treu explained his inclusion saying the tournament would enable him showcase his undoubted talent on the international stage and emerge a better player.

“The only way we can test our players and really build our depth is to give them an opportunity to play at the highest level,” he said.

Mwangi Muthee, the Chairman of the Kenya Rugby Union, said the Kenya team was the most experienced side on the circuit.

This is despite the Africans playing in a tricky Pool B alongside Argentina, Japan and South Africa.

“Coupled with the input of some terrific youth being injected into the team, we should now be delivering the goods,” Muthee said.

Titus Naikuni the Chief Executive Officer of Kenya Airways, the principal Sevens sponsor, assured the side the country was fully behind it in its quest to clinch the Tokyo and Hong Kong series.
