Treu blames injuries for poor showing

13 October 2014, 19:23

Nairobi - Kenyan national team sevens coach Paul Treu has praised his young inexperienced side for their performance at the Gold Coast Sevens in Australia this past weekend.

Treu’s side lost 40-7 to Canada in the shield final at the opening leg of the IRB Sevens World Series.

The former Springbok sevens coach said injuries to Augustine Lugonzo, Fabian Olando and Max Theuri robbed the side of most of its experience and quality.

“With my first choice sweeper, fly-half and centre out, I had to move Leonard Mugaisi to fly-half and when Oliver Mang’eni replaced Jacob Ojee, Bush Mwale had to move to centre,” Treu told the Daily Nation.

“We were basically down to nine players. It was a massive jump for most of the players from club to top notch level, and they have shown a lot of promise.”

The Sevens Series will break until the December 5 when the second leg kicks off in Dubai.

True added that he was considering recalling a few of the more experienced players to the national side ahead of that event.
